i can't find a link for drivers to recognize my action cam. i want to use it as a webcam. It does recognize the camera as a mass storage, the sd card.

There's no need for any drivers, just press the top button once it's connected to the PC, and it sets itself as PC camera, Linux automatically recognizes it as an UVC device (iCatchtek SPCA6350).

  • @Vincent-Michael Thank you for that comment. After trying to find out what is wrong with my A80, I removed the SD card and it finally transmits video to the PC. Commented Aug 25, 2020 at 18:58
