Thank you Neil; After some more experimentation I found out that on the board I was using, the devices show up if I use the USB A port in the middle of the board but not on the port located near the edge.  I have yet to try my other robovero to see if the behavior is the same.  On the good port (center one) my webcam shows up as /dev/video0.

Yes this is the expected behaviour. Do you have an Overo mounted on
the RoboVero? I have used an Overo Fire + RoboVero + webcam (without
the console connected) to stream video before. The camera showed up as
/dev/video0 as I recall.
