My Mobius came with a very short cable to connect to an OTG cable to my Samsung S3 so I can view a live feed.

There seems to be a bad connection as the live feed is constantly dropping out, with a loop of 'access granted' and a quick view then a 'camera disconnected', After that comes the report that:
'sdt-518ca Android is not compatible with webcam module embedded in this camera firmware'.
I then have to unmount the card and exit the program, reconnect and try again with the same results.

I have quite a few USB / Mini cables and all seem to only supply power and do not allow direct control.

Is this the sort of cable I should be looking for ? It says 'Data Transfer' so would assume so.

I would prefer 1m cable but will go 2m if needs be.

Too many ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
I recall reading something in the USB tools details that some Samsung models were a problem, not sure if that applies to your model or not

The S3 is not one with reported problems, indeed the live feed does work, its just that the connection is a bit erratic. The short lead that came with the camera has the two inner USB contacts shorter than they are on normal USB cables so I guess only just make contact but are very easily dislodged so break the connection. I just want to make sure the lead I get will do what I want and will allow live feed data transfer.
