Logitech C270 - Raspberry Pi 4
What is the problem?
After months of flawless operation, the webcam tab in OctoPrint will show various digital artifacts during operation. When this is happening, no other streaming clients (IP Cam on Android and iOS, for example) can connect to the stream.
What did you already try to solve it?
Restarting the webcamd service will return operation to normal, as will rebooting the Rpi4. After a few hours, though, the problem will return. If Cura is connected via its OctoPrint add-in, it will crash when webcamd.service is restarted, even though it appears to be unable to display the stream.
/var/log/webcamd.log, syslog, dmesg, ... no logs, no support)
There's no /var/log/webcamd.log. I've included everything in /var/log that references either mjpg_streamer or webcamd.service, though.
