Writing USB webcam (UVC) driver
I'm thinking about writing a USB webcam (USB video class) driver for an embedded platform. Probably just going to implement things used by my webcam (only MJPEG payload, etc).
I have very little experience with USB, but I have skimmed over the specifications and it doesn't seem overly complex and mostly make sense.
The UVC document is fairly long... but I'm hoping I won't have to implement most things, as all I need to do is read MJPEG frames from the webcam, and write them directly to SD card. No decoding required.

Has anyone done anything like this before? What's the most challenging part? Anything easily overlooked?
