    Hi all,

    Is there any reason that I'd be unable to get a usb OTG camera working on my 8T.

    The camera is working as I tested it on an old Samsung device but despite trying about 20 different apps I couldn't get it working on the 8T.

    I also tried enabling otg storage in settings but that made no difference.

    Did you try changing the USB connection options after plugging in the USB camera.
    Midi setting?

    Hmm I didn't get the usual usb notification on the screen after plugging the camera in.

    Any idea where this setting would be hidden away? Is it still a setting in Android/Oxygen 11?

    Looking a bit deeper I discovered a setting called "USB preference" under settings and another called "Default USB configuration" under developer options.

    They seem to provide the same options but USB preference is greyed out and I can't change it. Default USB Configuraton I can amend but it doesn't seem to affect the USB preference setting.

    I tried a using PTP and MIDI settings (not sure which is correct) with OTG switched on and off. Unfortunately I still can't get this working.

    Can anyone confirm the correct combination of settings for an external camera?

    Hi, does any one have any suggestions on this?

    Would this forum be the best way to get input from OnePlus?

    Hi Ben,

    what settings / camera / application combination did you use to get it working?

    Cheers Dan
