You will need to see if it is supported first, check your dmesg to see if there are any drivers loaded for it, if not it may not be supported.

Hi,
yes, the camera is supported.
On my laptop Thinkpad x250 everything works fine, except Bluetooth.

Yep, OpenBSD's BT support is quite inexistent.

Webcam and bluetooth are different things here.

My webcam is disabled on my x250 and other than testing if it worked, I've never used it for anything. And at the time "worked" meant that it turned on, but if I recall, the picture was messed up.

Default Nobody is using webcam, then

Ok, after many days of my post and after reading some comments, it's obvious no one is using the Webcam on OpenBSD.

The webcam is not something I use on any computer, & I have seldom used bluetooth - just recently with another computer to listen to music though some headphones.

My main usage is web browsing, forums, music, videos, & simple time waster games.

Have you tried the misc@ mailing list? This forum's OpenBSD users are a very small subset of the OpenBSD community.
