Codycam webcam bug

Description

So Codycam doesn't support integrated laptop webcam. And also would be good if Codycam could record video as well, from webcamera, same as cheese application for Linux. Because it seems now it can't record video formats, it supports only image formats.

It isn't that Codycam doesn't support webcams... its that Haiku doesn't support many standard webcams.

There is a uvcvideo driver that may work on usb 2.0 ports... and those are easy to find typically called "driverless webcams" since they are used the standard UVC video interface. Even still full isochronous transfer support is missing from Haiku's USB stack and this is typically needed for webcams.

The UVC driver is not included in default builds and does not work.

Do we need this ticket? There are dozens already for webcam driver support.
