How do you install a camera on Vibe?

Installing a camera on Vibe is as easy as plug-in-and-play. No driver or software setup is needed.

Installing a USB camera on Vibe is very easy. You just need to plug in the camera into the USB 2.0 port (located in the back of the Vibe board), and then open your favorite video conference app.

Here are some troubleshooting tips:

  • USB 2.0 typically has a better audio connection, so we recommend using the USB 2.0 port over USB 3.0 for your webcam.

  • If your video conferencing software does not show a video preview, first make sure the camera is turned on in the software. If that does not work, restart Vibe with the camera attached.
    • You can restart Vibe by pressing and holding the Reset/ standby button on the back of the device (lower left corner - see diagram below).

  • Consider quality: Sometimes a lower-quality webcam will have an echo when using the microphone. If that is the case, we recommend getting a camera on this list of compatible cameras we have tested.
  • Consider size: Small cameras such as the Logitech BRIO can be easily clipped on the top of the board. Bigger cameras may need mounting accessories, such as this one.
