DroidCam not working with usb

    Hi, I got a headache trying to make DroidCam work with the usb, I read all kind of tutorials on the internet in order to configure it to work but I still get errors and what not.

    I own an allview x3 soul lite, downloaded droid cam client for windows PC and installed the app on my phone , it works with wifi but with the usb just won't....

    I enabled usb debugging, start the cam and it says:
    daemon not running. starting it now on port 5037
    daemon started successfully
    Then I get a No device detected error.

    The closer I got to make it work was when I installed Android Studio and did all kind of settings from a tutorial with adb and all kind of commands in cmd , I managed to get my device detected but then the problem was that the adb server version was outdated...

    Why is this so complicated? DroidCam has already ADB but why my device won't get detected? I installed the usb driver for my device but still...

    Any help would be appreciated. thx

    Sounds like it might be compatibility issues between DroidCam and your Allview device, that the developers need to fix. Have you tried contacting Dev47Apps about it?

    No I didn't contact them but I also started to think that it could be a compatibility issue cause I tried all sort of things from many tutorials and always ended up with errors...

    The developers might be able to suggest something, or could be their app needs a compatibility update.

    Of course somebody else here on AF might know and possibly have ideas.

    I installed the usb driver from my phone but I get an error yet still says the driver is working properly but still can't find my device in cmd with adb devices... and when I launch droid cam, it uses the adb from droid cam and still can't find my device..

    What methods have you used to install ADB on your computer?

    DroidCam has one already but it doesn't seem to work then I installed the whole android studio which has adb , with that one I managed to recognize my device but I ended up in another error, the adb server was outdated... then I gave up

    I am also having these problems.
    Android 6.0.1 (LG Tribute HD)
    Windows 7 Home Premium - SP1 (Toshiba Satelleite A505)

    This is what I have done so far;

    1) Install droidcam app on phone
    2) Install droidcam PC client
    3) Install specific adb driver listed o0n dev47 droidcam help page
    4) Tried to install Toshiba specific driver (windows said driver is already updated...)
    5) Set phone to "developer mode"
    6) Went into dev mode settings to change FTP to PTP
    7) Tried to connect - failed
    8) Watched video about how to, guy said make sure is in IP field
    9) Tried again, failed
    10) Deb47 says try to end "adb.exe" process and try again...failed
    11) Restarted phone and reconnected...failed
    12) Tried to match the port on the phone app with the pc client, FAILED.

    I swear to god, for $20-40 for a new webcam, THIS BULLCRAP IS NOT WORTH MY TIME!!! Why does EVERYTHING I do more advanced than saving a file have to be so god damned complicated!!!

    I had wo mic Installed I found 3 files similar which were in droid cams adb folder ,
    I copied those 3 files from wo mic and replaced them with droid cams adb folders 3 files .

    I have attached screen shot please have look and use droidcams updated drivers .
    Please uninstall mobiles drivers and reinstall it .
    and enter in wifi first then move to usb as in my mobiles client it was I entered it in desktops clients folder

    for using wo mics folder the signature update of windows 7 64 bit update of this link is required -Windows6.1-KB3033929-x64
