[Linux-uvc-devel] Partial success with 04f2:b012 Chicony Electronics

Hi all,

I just wanted to report partial success for a Chicony Electronics
webcam, which can be found in current Asus G1S laptops. Thank you for
all your hard work, and I look forward to watching the driver
progress.

uvcview works if I call it with -f yuv. Omitting this parameter or
querying with -l results in errors:

luvcview version 0.2.1
Video driver: x11
A window manager is available
video /dev/video0
Unable to set format: 22.
 Init v4L2 failed !! exit fatal

I also tested the OpenCV library integration that was posted on the
list last month, and it works fine, as well. This is enough to get me
started for now and is, at any rate, much better than what I had dared
to hope for only two months ago.
