I bought a SKYDROID 5.8G DUAL RECEIVER from Aliexpress and decided to test it on Linux and Android:
It was detected automatically on Linux:
new high-speed USB device number 9 using xhci_hcd New USB device found, idVendor=18ec, idProduct=5850, bcdDevice= 1.00 Product: USB2.0 PC CAMERA Manufacturer: ARKMICRO Found UVC 1.00 device USB2.0 PC CAMERA (18ec:5850) UVC non compliance - GET_DEF(PROBE) not supported. Enabling workaround
Then I opened the program guvcview and selected the camera “USB2.0 PC CAMERA”, it displayed some noise image in the screen. Then I pressed the button over the label USB in the SKYDROID receiver and it started to sweep all the frequencies to find the image. Then it automatically found my camera:
I didn’t test it yet with the cheese program, but I think it will work fine too!
Next I decided to test it on Android.

I want to find later an open-source alternative app for Android that works with SKYDROID.
