I have a webcam without signed drivers (that kind of cheap/old webcam that's not plug and play and requires a driver, otherwise it shows in device manager as a yellow question mark)
After I installed the drivers in Windows 8 x86 (drivers unsigned, got the "red confirmation" during the install), I see it in the device manager as a webcam, and I see it in the Metro control panel in the "devices" tab as a webcam.
But, no Metro application can see it and use it, from the preinstalled Camera app, to Skype.
I checked the authorization in the charms bar, and I gave them the permission to access camera/mic, but it doesn't work.
So, I have the feeling that you need a webcam with signed drivers for use with Metro/Modern UI applications, am I right?
Is there is a fix for this, or do I need to buy a new webcam?
