Hello everyone. Can I use a Creality camera which is usb with my rasberry pi 4? I am using my rasberry solely for 3d printing. I have been using the ribbon style camera and wanted to give my dad (who isn't using it lol)
I bought a Crealitybox with a Creality camera for myself quickly to find out that it has connectivity issues and is far inferior to the rasberry pi (I am an impulsive buyer). So I was hoping to combine the camera with the pi. I plugged it in but it is not working.
It should be compatible, since it is a USB webcam that does output mjpeg according to the specs. Th question is whether it has anything different in it that is not supported by Linux.
So if you have it plugged in, run
lsusb (over SSH to the Pi) and see if the device is listed. If it is, run
v4l2-ctl --list-devices and paste the output to see if it is recognized by the Pi.
Hi, it might be an old post, but I have the same question, whether or not the Creality camera can work with Octoprint. I have done suggested above and here is the result.
pi@octopi:~ $ v4l2-ctl --list-devices
CREALITY CAM: CREALITY CAM (usb-0000:01:00.0-1.3):
camera_usb_options="-r 1920x1080 -f 10 "
Hi, did you manage to make it work?
It seems CREALITY CAM works just with Creality Wifi Box?!?
