Please note that the Camera app fails in exactly the same way as the Messaging app and the Music app:

E/AudioFlinger( 1414): createTrack_l() Bad parameter: sampleRate 44100 format 1, channelMask 0x00000001 "for output 0xff28 with format 1
E/AudioTrack( 1564): AudioFlinger could not create track, status: -22
E/SoundPool( 1564): Error creating AudioTrack

Camera preview and capture is working on pandaboard. Recording is still not implemented . Camera preview and capture is failing on other boards. This needs to be analysed. Moving the bug to 12.03

Will the solution produced be generically applied on all vendor tracks? Or is there any additional actions required to have this working on Snowball?

A normal speed camera is known to work with Snowball. Can you please provide the model number of the camera to compare with what was tested.

marking as "won't fix" for the igloocommunity project because we believe it is a user space issue and not a kernel one. Please re-open if proven otherwise.

All User Space Libararies for Camera HAL are now added in Android.
The kernel needs to be compiled with UVC (USB Video Class) support.

Then it should be OK.

Fixed for Origen

To use a USB camera, the V4L2 code seems to require USB driver to support isosynchronous data transfers and the driver for the controller on vexpress (isp1760) doesn't support this.
