having my rift for 3 days now i finally wanted to make a video with commentary. i bought a cam microsoft live hd3000 last month for that purpose. problem is i cant use it in combination with the oculus.
i have to kill the oculus service from the taskmanager to have access to the webcam (that kills the rift functionallity obviously). otherwise i cant access it at all. it seems as if the oculus drivers use it somehow.
Pretty much most logitech equipment is affected by the oculus unit, drivers and software.
Best to stop all of these services until oculus release new firmware/software which ignore/non-conflict with them. it's basically anything that tracks, like trackir sensors, cameras, mouses, keyboards etc.
I have the same problem, I might actually have bought a replacement camera unbeknownst it was the DK2 that made my old one unresponsive! It was still five years old so fine, I needed a new one anyway 😛
In any case, it acts like this for me. Boot anything using the DK2 and the tracking camera is activated. But, if I while running that try to view the webcam or use it while streaming, it just restarts repeatedly and then shuts down. If I quit out of the VR app I can then use my webcam without issues again.
If I already am using my webcam, it works just fine, and boot a DK2 enabled application... I will get no positional tracking instead, the tracking camera just will not light up, this while my webcam will keep working no issues.
I really hope this issue will be adressed at some point, right now my webcam is useless for streaming VR (not that I have any viewers) as I cannot get positional tracking at the same time 😛 The camera I got now is a Logitech C930e, before that I had a Logitech QuickCam Pro 9000 (!) which I think worked with the DK2 up to a few weeks ago.
