Very dark image from webcam


#1

What is the problem?
I finally managed to get my Eken H9 action camera to work as a webcam on the Pi. However, the image is very dark, nearly impossible to see anything.

What did you already try to solve it?
I tried different configs in octopi.txt with the same results.

Is there a way to adjust the brightness?

I'm having a deja vu moment with another thread where we just talked about this. Only the Pi-related camera supports all the bells and whistles as seen in config.txt.

I solved the problem by removing the -y in the config. Thanks all
