I’m having trouble trying to get a usb webcam to work.
I got the latest version of hassio running on raspberry pi 3.
I can see it in lsusb and the webcam work in on my windows laptop still.
\dev\video doesn’t exist.
core-ssh:~# ls -al /dev/video*
ls: /dev/video*: No such file or directory
Any idea why or what to try to get to show.
you probably need to use a third party app / ffmpeg to pull the video out of the cam and make it available to HA
I personally use motion for this
What camera is it your trying to use? Just a usb webcam?
So it’s old webcam from toshiba laptop.
I’ve tried using motionEye and that couldn’t find the device.
so I got it working with motion… sort of (see pic). Anyideas? tired every type not really sure what’s going on here? I did it also double check that it still works on my windows pc.
Side note there a limitation for motionEye for hassio that mean it can’t access local usb camera.
switched to 32 bit works fine
