Camera stream stops working after first print since boot


I incorrectly reported this as a bug on the github page for octoprint, but now realize that this maybe more is a problem with something in octopi?

Any one that have had similar issues or have any idea on how to fix it or troubleshoot further?

Cam not working?

There are times when I need to refresh the page with OctoPrint if the stream appears to be static or not showing. For me, it always clears up the problem. I think it's related to those times when my computer goes to sleep and I wake it up again.


Unfortunately that doesn't help. Only way I have found to get it streaming again is to reboot the Rpi. And then it stops working again as soon as I start a print.


Well, the Raspi3 has four cores and can handle the load whereas the cheaper/earlier models do not. It's good that you started with a fresh OctoPi image just in case any of the drivers were different.

If it were me, I think I'd go to the 0.15.0 version of OctoPi which is now under general release from what I understand.

Does http://octopi.local:8080/?action=stream from another browser tab/window work better?


Sry for the late response, the email notification from your message had landed in the spam folder :frowning:

Thx for the sugestion, But sadly, trying http://octopi.local:8080/?action=stream gives the exact same problem as before.


And you're not in Internet Explorer (v11) are you?


Mainly using chrome, but have tested Microsoft edge as well.
