Raspberry Pi Type B+ and Kinect

Fri Aug 01, 2014 1:12 pm

Hello, as you might know Kinect does not work on Raspberry Pi Type B:

http://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewt ... =37&t=4530

Some claimed that it is because USB on Raspberry is not being able to handle the big data traffic. With a new USB controller chip present on Type B+, did anybody experiment with Kinect again to check if anything has changed? I especially wonder if we can get high resolution video and depth via libfreenect library.

the USB is the same on the B as the B+ it is just clocked differently
the other issues are probably still there
