Try changing your camera stream format to MJPG in the config file

Thank you Charlie.
That does appear to have done it. After a few failed camera-streamer restarts, usb cable removals and stopping camera-streamer, waiting a handful of seconds, starting and plugging the camera back in, it sprang into life.
Thank you.
Now time to configure some funky time lapse.
Really appreciate you taking the time to reply.
