Did running in safe mode solve the problem?


Systeminfo Bundle

You can download this in OctoPrint's System Information dialog ... no bundle, no support!)


Additional information about your setup

OctoPrint version, OctoPi version, printer, firmware, browser, operating system, ... as much data as possible<

i am running octoprint on a raspberry pi 4
i have 1 usb webcam working great but i cant add a second usb webcam,
ive read the [Setting up multiple webcams in OctoPi the right way]
but i dont have a octopi.txt file to copy so am lost.
any help would be much apreciated before im completely bald.

If you are on a Raspberry Pi but you are not using OctoPi, then please share info about your setup and how you installed the webcam streaming in the first place.

hi i installed octoprint using the Setting up OctoPrint on a Raspberry Pi running Raspberry Pi OS

hi here are the way the files are setup,
any help would be great
thank you


Don't just ping me in order to get support! If everyone in need of help with OctoPrint did this, I could no longer work or even go online at all.

My apologies i didnt mean to be nuisance i do appreciate the hard work you do and octoprint is great and makes printing much simpler and better
Thank you martin

hi any help would be great anyone .

Apologies, it seems I missed this post after I replied initially.

The guide you've used applies to OctoPi. Since you aren't using that but a manual install, the multi-camera setup won't work that way, instead I would imagine it requires more effort to duplicate the service files, you won't just be able to add a config.
