Hello folks,

Yesterday I purchased a 360 Slim after I had introduced myself to the Zephyr Fat, which played for about 2 hours before the GPU solder melted (without even RROD, lol). Now stacked up with a decent amount of games, a Kinect is all that's missing. I've found quite a bunch of articles about how to use Kinect as a webcam, but not the other way around.

Is it possible to use a custom webcam (Logitech C922) as a Kinect in-game motion sensor, or does the Kinect record specific data that a normal webcam isn't capable of?

i believe kinect uses infrared beams to record things a regular webcam could never. also think it has more then one camera lens

Yeah that was my concern as well. Head/body movement detection and stuff. Custom cams seem to work with Xbox One ( https://www.windowscentral.com/how-use-any-usb-webcam-mixer-xbox-one ) but the 360 isn't even aware that anything's connected...
