try to increase you gpu memory in the raspi-config

Should be sudo raspi-config, then Advanced Options, then Memory Split in the shell
Try 192MB or 256MB

Grab the log from running journalctl -u webcamd if it isn't there, there's a bug that prevented it from being written in that version of OctoPi.
