Webcam detected but not streaming
I followed several tutorials over the web but I couldn't get my SQ11 Webcam to work. I'm working on an Omega2 with firmware version 0.3.2 b233.
When I run
ls /dev/v*it returns among other stuff
/dev/video0, so I guess the camera is detected successfully. I also tried the SQ11 previously on my computer, it works.
I tried several things:
mjpg_streamer -i "input_uvc.so -r 1280x720 -f 15 -d /dev/video0" -o "output_http.so -p 8080 -w /www/webcam", I get the output:
MJPG Streamer Version.: 2.0 i: Using V4L2 device.: /dev/video0 i: Desired Resolution: 1280 x 720 i: Frames Per Second.: 15 i: Format............: JPEG i: TV-Norm...........: DEFAULT Unable to set format: 1196444237 res: 1280x720 Init v4L2 failed !! exit fatal i: init_VideoIn failed
mjpg_streamer -i "./input_uvc.so -f 30 -r 1280x720 -d /dev/video0" -o "./output_http.so -w ./www -p 8080" -band it returned
enabling daemon moderoot@Omega-XXXX:~# forked to background (7126)
But when I went to
http://192.168.3.1:8080/?action=streamit gave me an ERR_CONNECTION_REFUSED error.
mjpg_streamer -i "/usr/lib/input_uvc.s -d /dev/video0" -o "output_http.so -p 8080", getting the output
MJPG Streamer Version.: 2.0 ERROR: could not find input plugin Perhaps you want to adjust the search path with: # export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/path/to/plugin/folder dlopen: Error loading shared library /usr/lib/input_uvc.s: No such file or directory
- I even tried making a simple photo with
fswebcam --no-banner -r 1280x720 `date +"%Y-%m-%d_%H%M%S"`.jpg, but I got the error
--- Opening /dev/video0... Trying source module v4l2... /dev/video0 opened. No input was specified, using the first. Unable to find a compatible palette format.
Is there any kind soul who could help a noob out? I would be very thankful, as I'm very lost and frustrated, and I don't know what else to try.
