Issue with octopi cam- does not connect

What is the problem?

Suddenly my camera stopped working and I get the message "webstream cam not loaded"

What did you already try to solve it?

-try to change the direction in the setting to add my IP but didn't work.
-I changed ribbon

Have you tried running in safe mode?


Did running in safe mode solve the problem?

does somone know how to solve it please?

OctoPrint version 1.5.3, OctoPi version 0.18.0 , printer creator pro , firmware, browser, operating system, ... as much data as possible


Does that mean it stops after some time or doesn't work anymore at all?

you have to add something to that command - like nano to open it in a text editor. (nano /var/log/webcamd.log)
I would suggest that you use WinSCP to connect to your pi an download the log file.
It looks like a file explorer.

did it with putty. is this what i need??

  • It seems that you don't have VL805 (Raspberry Pi 4).
    There should be no problems with USB (a.k.a. select() timeout)
