USB Web Camera
I've just installed the Android image 20191227-tinker-board-android-nougat-userdebug-v14.4.0.5.
I need to use a USB Webcam for my project.

If I boot the TB and then, after Android is booted, I plug the webcam all works like a charm.

If instead, I plug the webcam and then I boot the TB, the webcam is not recognized and when I run the camera app, no error is given but I see a black screen with an icon camera at the center. In this situation, if I unplug the camera and then I plug it again all works like a charm.

It seems as the Android can see the webcam only if it is plugged after the boot.

Is there a way to solve this issue? My project needs to left the webcam plugged also when the TB is powered off.
