No webcam image in Mainsail

Hi Folks,

I am trying to get a webcam working on my setup, but I can’t get it running… I followed the steps in the mainsail docs, but no result.

It’s a old webcam, a logitech quickcam notebook pro (no further info on the device itself)

I can find it on the pi:

added this to webcam.txt:

camera_usb_options="-r 640x480 -f 10 -d /dev/v41/by-id/usb-046d_08b1-video-index0"

and tried to add the device as not working with -f


restarted the webcam, the whole pi etc… all with no succes…

someone that can point me in the right direction?

is [youripadress]:8080/?action=stream working so far? Is the camera working at all? I had a lot of trouble with the webcams, so maybe I can tell you, what I was doing. Is the screencopy (black 0 FPS) from Fluidd/mainsail? If the connection is wrong, Fluidd shows a “broken link” icon for the camera. Is the …-video-index0 correct? my adress is …-video0 or -video3 (I use 2 Webcams on one host)…
