Using a USB camera instead of an embedded webcam

I currently have an old Microsoft Surface Pro 1 running the newest installed of Ubuntu Desktop. I installed octoprint using this guide:

Unfortunately, I've been having issues getting the USB Webcam (Logitech Quickcam S5500) to display on octoprint. It is able to be seen on the ubuntu app through "Cheese".

My goal is to only be using the Logitech webcam, not the embedded ones.

Cameras attached:

UVC Camera (046d:09a1) (usb-0000:00:14.0-2.2):
        /dev/video4
        /dev/video5

Rear LifeCam: Rear LifeCam (usb-0000:00:1a.0-1.1):
        /dev/video0
        /dev/video1

Front LifeCam: Front LifeCam (usb-0000:00:1d.0-1.7):
        /dev/video2
        /dev/video3

Below are some of the camera information gathered by the log file when I was connecting it.

My bad I just saw that the webcam log is octopi specific

If you got a bios option to disable your front and rear cam I would try it.
I guess the webcam script just picks the wrong camera

Since the author of this google doc basically just ripped the info from the RPi Setup guide and the webcam script that's also on the OctoPi image, I suggest to take a look at the webcam options that can be configured via /boot/octopi.txt (which funnily enough was left in and you should probably change to a different path) as documented here, specifically the -d parameter:

In general I suggest to use official guides instead of some externally managed tutorials, since these are the only ones I can ensure accuracy on and hence provide support.

Alright there you got it :smiley:
I was about to guess where he should put the -d /dev/video4 or -d /dev/video5 in the webcam script :smiley:

/boot/octopi.txt does not exist on my system.

However, this command puts out a temporary page:

./mjpg_streamer -i "./input_uvc.so -d /dev/video4 -f 30 -r 1280x960" -o "./output_http.so -w ./www -p 8081"

Not sure where this should go to boot with this everytime.

I'm not sure if @foosel is still online.

I would try to add -d /dev/video4 to your webcamDaemon script.

change the line camera_usb_options="-r 640x480 -f 10" to camera_usb_options="-r 640x480 -f 10 -d /dev/video4"

If that doesn't work you have to wait until she is back :wink:
