    Hi,

    i have an android box, the MXQ Pro Quick Play with AMLogic S905. I would like to use it with a nodemcu and install maybe something like libreElec or Openelec in the android box. Maybe ARMbian ?

    But i don't know if i will find some issues. I want to connect a webcam as a grabber instead of the classic USB UTV007 and HDMi to RCA converter. Because i heard that OpenElec or LibreElec don't allow to use some packet/driver to install webcam, and Raspbian is better than the 2 others one.

    Should i try or directly sell this box and buy a new raspberry ? If i can avoid this step, it could be perfect for me :)

    Thank you
