Please read carefully, there are MANY answers to the 'opposite' question from the one I ask here, but I cannot find an answer to the following question:
I have an android device with no built-in camera. I want to be able to use a REMOTE camera as the "built-in" camera on this android device. The remote camera could be a (streaming)webcam, or it could be a USB cam attached to a PC.
My requirement is that the android device i use "think" that it has a camera built-in (or even better, two cameras, a front- and rear-facing one), so that I can use Skype, and zoom, and all other camera apps.
I am happy to also need to install software on the remote device where the camera is physically attached. That remote device is really a windows PC, but if necessary, i could perhaps have it be a Linux box.
Please note that I do NOT need to 'turn' my android camera into a webcam. That is "easy" -- except that I don't have an android camera. That is why i need to do the opposite. I would be fine to use a very generic solution, for example a "net-usb" client server solution, which would give me a usb-camera on my android. But the solutions i have seen like that are VERY expensive.
Thank you for any help/pointers you can give me.
--scott PS ("the truth") -- the truth is that I would like to run Skype and Zoom on an android-86 running within a Windows HyperVisor. Unfortuantely, Windows HyperV seems not to support USB, and so i don't know how to add a 'built-in' camera to the android-x86 which I have already running there. Therefore, i can not use SKype or Zoom, since I don't have a camera 'built-in' to this machine.
