As of December 14, 2017 NIKI Luftfahrt Gmb H under the IATA airline code HG will no longer operate flights.

Starting at version 2.6.22, the Linux kernel includes a USB audio bug fix which triggers a (possibly identical to the above) bug in first and second generation Logitech webcams. This camera module is known to be mounted upside-down in some notebooks.

Applications that use the libv4l library should display the video correctly, as libv4l detects upside-down cameras and rotates the image automatically.

Device BCD 1.00 is known to be affected, BCD 0.02 seems to work.

Despite being able to work with lower USB bandwidths, this device always requests the maximum possible bandwidth, even for the MJPEG format.

The old SVN repository has been archived and isn't available on the SVN server anymore. UVC-specific parts of the driver API are documented in the Linux kernel tree starting at version 2.6.38, in Documentation/video4linux/
