Default USB Webcam through Xbox 360?

I was wondering if maybe there is a way to use any USB-supported webcam on an Xbox 360, rather than the Xbox Live Vision Camera. I was told I could find it here, and after doing quite a few searches, I had no luck.

If any help at all can be given, it would be highly appreciated.
Thanks in advance to anyone who is kind enough to help me out with my questions. :)

Just plug a WebCam in and see if it works...

I've tried that, it didn't detect anything.

I've heard from someone that there's a way to add the Xbox Live Vision Driver to any USB webcam, so I thought I might ask if anyone here knows how to do this. I've checked several websites with no luck.

Meh, I have a Logitect USB Webcam for my PC, and I play Uno on XBL, so I figured that if I can get it to work, I might as well use it to my advantage.

I've heard there are ways to do it if you properly alter the drivers on your webcam, so I figured if maybe there was a way, someone on here would know. After all, I was told that I could find the way to do it via this website, but I looked for similar posts and found nothing.

Either way, if I don't figure it out, I still appreciate all of your answers. But if any developments are made, it would be highly appreciated if they were shared. Thank you. :)

It's kinda a software thing. There is a USB chip on the webcam with an ID number. You would have to reprogram that chip with the ID number of the xbox live camera.
Only then would it maybe work. The hardware controller on your camera might be different than the controller on the xbox live camera. In which case the drivers built into the 360 wouldn't be able to communicate with the camera.

I don't know the usb ID number for xbox live camera and most likely reprogramming the stock chip on your webcam is impossible. It would require you to replace the chip with a similar one that you could connect to a chip programmer.

Meh, I guess if anything, I'll have to go out and buy a XBLVC. :(

Thanks for the information. :)
