    Hello everyone -- I'm wondering if anyone has any experience replacing a built-in front-facing camera on any android device with a UVC/USB webcam. What I want to do is build a custom app that works on a regular android phone where I can use the camera1 or camera2 apis to get access to camera data from a USB webcam I have. I of course know that on this site there are many guides for replacing cameras on various android devices using manufactured replacements (sometimes non-OEM), but I am trying to figure out if there is any android device and some sort of adapter where I could plug into the front-facing cameras MIPI/CSI port but have it be able to plug into some kind of webcam/uvc/usb signal. It would be pretty sweet if you could plug in "arbtrary" webcams that support UVC and have an Android phone read this as a normal camera signal that could be processed with the Android Camera APIs!

    Probably find more information at XDA Forums as they more geared to things like that
