Hi guys.

I've been trying for two weeks now to find a suitable USB UVC device.

The ideal candidate would be able to function in FULL SPEED usb mode & the transfer endpoint absolutely must be of the BULK variety. Big bonus if the camera already can do some form of compression (mjpeg/ h264), but that's optional. Size or resolution are irrelevant - I'm currently aiming for VGA anyway.

The only webcams I've found so far use isochronous endpoints and I really can't be using those. I've already checked the documentation for USB UVC devices and the standard specifies that webcams can deliver their data via either bulk or isochronous endpoints.

If you guys ever did find such a device, i would be most grateful for any kind of pointer.
Thanks!

It may help to know why you are looking for what you are looking for. If you want a webcam with the highest transfer speed look for a high resolution webcam that can do 60 frames/s those are more likely to have a faster speed to the host. Or get a full camera like what the better streaming setups use.
