Hero 9 Webcam mode using a USB hub[ New ]
Is there any reason the Hero 9 would not work as a webcam when connected to my laptop via a USB hub?
The Hero 9 works fine when connected directly to my laptop USB 3.1 Gen 1 port. However it is not recognized at all when I connect via a USB hub that is connected to my USB 3.1 Gen 2 port. I have a cheap logitech webcam that works fine via the hub so I know the hub is basically working. It is an inexpensive Chinese hub so perhaps a different hub would work, but before I rip my hair out purchasing and trying another hub, I'd like to know if anyone has successfully run webcam mode via a hub and if so:
- Which hub was it?
- What cables did you use?
- What type of USB port did you use on the computer (i.e., 3.0, 3.1 G1, 3.1 G2, etc)?
- Anything else I should know?
Thanks in advance.
