Trying to connect AverMedia capture card

I’m trying to get my GC551 capture card to work in Linux. I have V4L2 installed, but OBS does not seem to be reading it. Am I missing something?

Hi @thecrimsoneye :wink:

Maybe this capture card has just no driver support for linux?

Here is a list supported cards of avermedia: AVerMedia - LinuxTVWiki

Could you post this output when the card is connected via usb?

lsusb -t -v

This says enough


CG551 on Linux
Is it possible to install a CG551 on Linux to use with OBS or any other capturing software? Are there any drivers?

Hi mizfih,
No. Our gaming capture card doesn’t support Linux. -DSS
