can't connect to the camera

Hi,

I am working on MCIMX6DL-SDP board which has android 4.0.4 running on it. The Android O.S. came pre - installed along with the board in the NOR flash and I am using NAND boot. The OS build number is R13.4-beta. When I connect a logitech usb camera to the board, I can see the following messages getting displayed on my minicom console:

 

uvcvideo: Found UVC 1.00 device <unnamed> (046d:0825)                  

input: UVC Camera (046d:0825) as /devices/platform/fsl-ehci.0/usb1/1-1/1-1:1.0/8

3:3:1: cannot get freq at ep 0x86

 

Also, I do see a video node appearing in the 'dev' directory, every time I connect the camera to the board, displayed as "video2". Hence, I assume that the external camera is getting detected. However, When I try to launch the built in Camera app, it says "Can't connect to camera". Also, I can see the following error on my minicom console:

ERROR: v4l2 capture: slave not found!

 

The logcat -v time messages which I receive at the time of launching the camera app are as follows:

Do I need to apply some patch and rebuild the android kernel in order to get the external camera working..?

Can anybody help me getting this issue resolved. I am working on an android video calling application and hence, need the usb camera to work on the development platform.

 

Best regards,

Sumit
