Hi,

I have a recent version of logitech sphere/orbit camera, and I want to use it with player.  Sphere driver breaks when I try playercam:

:~/Desktop/player-2.1.0rc2/config$ player sphere.cfg
Driver added to table
Registering driver
Player v.2.1.0rc2

I think the problem is the v4l driver code embedded in the sphere driver, since camerauvc driver works fine. I also tried luvcview, and managed to set pan/tilt.

Is there a workaround for this problem?

best,
