Im using Logitech HD Webcam C310. And i not very sure about the drivers used.
Now i have my galileo boot from an SD card because i found out this step is needed if i want to run Python scripts in Galileo. Python for Galileo — Clay and Galileo
I am still figuring out what is the next step?
And running Python in Galileo is it using Linux of Galileo board?
What do you see under /dev? Are you able to see video0 in the list? If you not, run on your board the line:
root@clanton:~# modprobe uvcvideo
And check again the list under /dev. It seems that the webcam works with UVC so you would not need another driver. I will investigate more about the webcam/driver but in the meantime try with that and let us know.
For using python you can run it with:
Or you can create a script and in then run it with:
root@clanton:~# python yourscript.py
