Hi Joe,
These are the input sources from the menu:
The download was very straightforward for me. Give it a go, and if it doesn't work, uninstall it. :cpu:
As I said above, my phone isn't compatible. I don't have a web cam.
Good luck.

via the ArUco library <<https://github.com/opentrack/aruco>>
- Razer Hydra
- Relaying via UDP from a different computer
- Relaying UDP via FreePIE-specific Android app
- Joystick analog axes (Windows)
- Windows Phone [tracker](https://github.com/ZanderAdam/OpenTrack ... Phone/wiki) over opentrack UDP protocol

It looks like, to have it work as intended, your camera needs to be capable of understanding of a 3d image. Smooth track is using the elements from Google ARcore app, which, if your phone is not "supported" won't let you download from Google play (Google have a list of supported devices on their AR site) My phones not on the list so I was unable to download Smooth track I did find a couple of other utilities that connected with Open track, but it only worked using the phones gyro
