Linux

We have tested our microscope with many Linux distros utilizing either the Cheese app or GTK+ UVC Viewer. These can either be installed by searching by app name through the app store in your Linux distro (if available), or by using the following terminal commands.

GTK+ UVC Viewer
sudo apt-get install guvcview

Cheese
sudo apt-get install cheese
Android

Using the microscope on an Android device requires an OTG cable. We recommend the app CameraFi 2, available on Google Play .

Note: Android support is on a case-by-case basis. Device manufacturers must have support for USB Video Class devices built-in or this will not work.
Chrome OS

No additional software is needed. Please see Google's guide to capturing photos and video, just use the microscope as your source.
