Has anyone ever heard of removing a laptop's internal webcam to use externally? I would like to do this with my Samsung NF210 netbook camera, so I can use it as a security camera, as it can't get close enough to a window in its current screen-mounted state.
But upon opening up the netbook's screen, I see that the webcam has FIVE connectors?! But USB only has four?? There is a twisted pair, which is probably D+/D-, black is probably ground, and then there is a yellow wire and an orange wire. There are definitely 5 connectors on the webcam PCB as well. I have only ever heard of USB using 5 connectors in a USB OTG cable, in which pin 5 is called "sense", and is only used to be shorted to ground.
Any idea how to solder a USB connector to this thing?
