I have been struggling for a while now to get my webcam to work while not attached to a pc, but to a DSP. I have to do this for a project, but can't figure it out. The webcam needs some or other initialization and probably a timing signal to operate. Somehow, I have to capture the initialization procedure that the computer software uses, and simulate it on the DSP, but I have no idea how I'm gonna do that. How can I "tap" or record the signal that the PC and the webcam says to each other during initialization and operation?
The setup is: webcam connected to a USB to parallel interface IC, and onto the DSP.
I contacted Logitech, but the tech support say they are not allowed to tell me anything.
Any help appreciated!
