Can you please tell us what type of logitech cam you are using?

Thanks for your response, It was a Logitech c170 but I fixed it. It sounds weird and something I must have done ?? But there was extra information in my settings in /boot/octoprint.txt so I just used what was in the recommended camera thread and that fixed it with -r 1024x768 -f 30

My settings somehow ended up with some extraneous numbers at the end of my string.

I'll happily accept this must have been something I did accidentally? but the setting I entered was done some time ago and only now just started to refuse to work. A plugin maybe? doubtful but what do I know right.

Thanks to all who even read my post. I need to lower the dose of my meds I guess :slight_smile:

When I first got mt Pi, I went and bought a Logitech C270, and dove right into the settings and started speaking Linux to it, to no avail, I couldn't get it to work for nuthin'

Then I spoke to a guy at work, who also has a 3D printer, and he told me that his C270 was plug and play, with no need to do any coding backflips. So I went and did a nuke and pave, and just plugged the thing in, and viola, it worked

So, yea, doesn't matter where the extra bits of code came from, they basically didn't belong. I learned a lesson that day... don't complicate things
