Review of Linux Compatibility

The Hue HD is a USB webcam with a long, flexible neck. At least two different versions of the Hue HD have been identified:

USB ID 0c45:62f1

The version with the USB ID 0c45:62f1 is supported by the UVC Linux driver, i.e. the kernel module uvcvideo. This driver loads automatically if the camera is connected:

usb 1-1.2: new high speed USB device number 4 using dwc_otg
usb 1-1.2: New USB device found, idVendor=0c45, idProduct=62f1
usb 1-1.2: New USB device strings: Mfr=2, Product=1, SerialNumber=0
usb 1-1.2: Product: USB 2.0 Camera
usb 1-1.2: Manufacturer: Sonix Technology Co., Ltd.
Linux media interface: v0.10
Linux video capture interface: v2.00
uvcvideo: Found UVC 1.00 device USB 2.0 Camera (0c45:62f1)
input: USB 2.0 Camera as /devices/platform/bcm2708_usb/usb1/1-1/1-1.2/1-1.2:1.0/input/input0
usbcore: registered new interface driver uvcvideo
USB Video Class driver (1.1.1)

However, the driver supports only a resolution of up to 640×480 although the camera should support higher resolutions.

USB ID 0c45:6282

Also a version of the camera with the USB ID 0c45:6282 was seen:

Bus 002 Device 002: ID 0c45:6282 Microdia PC Camera with Microphone (SN9C202 + MI1310)

This version of the camera seems to be not supported under Linux.
