    I'm having trouble using my webcam in Editor or Standalone Build.

    My webcam is MS LifeCam Studio. (Unity Version is 5.5.2f1)

    The value returned by WebCamDevice.name is "". (It is not null.)

    When two or more WebCams are installed (especially Logitech C920), there is a problem that it does not work even if you play () the camera.

    Do you know the solution to this problem?

    Today got the same cam and wanted to use it within my unity project without success. Problem seems to be a special character within the device name "Microsoft LifeCam HD-3000". Same here: https://answers.unity.com/questions/1407313/webcam-with-no-name.html

    So i think i need to get another one :( thats really awesome. THX it is just a string!!! Why there should not be a minus within. Arghh.

    I was able to replace all device names in registry by "Microsoft LifeCam HD 3000". It is working now. Maybe same procedure after replug the usb device.
