Some of you may have noticed that our WVC54GCA web cam has been off line for the last few weeks. It was down with an error that read "Video for other Platform/OS". I tried resetting it, I tried rolling back the firmware (which I'll post in a few days since Linsys has pulled it). I tried all of the video settings from low to high. Nothing seemed to work. It seemed like the ol' WVC54GCA that has served us so well was finally dead.
My son and I have been having fun with video creation on YouTube, so we made a quick video about the death of our beloved Linksys WVC54GCA web cam. After admiring our talent on YouTube for the heck of it we decided to try the Linksys one last time. Wouldn't you know it was working! I guess if you're getting the "Video for other Platform/OS" error on your Linksys camera, you need to feature it in a short YouTube video, drop it on the ground, hook it up to a multi-meter and bump it a few times with a cold soldering iron. This seemed to work for us!
