Notes:
[mansson 2012-01-05] This will not be possible using the V11 Snowball. Until we get confirmation that a) V12:s are available and b) V12 can do high-speed OTG - this BP must be considered to be blocked.
[vishalbhoj 2012-01-11] USB camera support seems to be enabled on v5 and v11 boards.
[2012/1/22 pfefferz] Remove Talk to watchitoo about API: TODO, won't do.
[2012/1/31 vishalbhoj] Google hangout has been tested on panda. 2 way video + audio playback ( except audio recording which is broken) works. Still need to fix preview in the app.
[2012/2/15] pfefferz Blocked until USB works and/or we can get the camera board and the MM framework.
[2012/2/22 vishalbhoj] Got camera working for a mjpeg supported camera during connect but still it was unusable as the frames were getting corrupted and usb camera detection was not happening everytime.
