Webcam no longer working

What is the problem?

Webcam not showing up.

What did you already try to solve it?

I can get the video stream using vlc.

Systeminfo Bundle

You can download this in OctoPrint's System Information dialog ... no bundle, no support!)


Additional information about your setup

OctoPrint version, OctoPi version, printer, firmware, browser, operating system, ... as much data as possible

Everything is up to date. This is a manually installed octoprint 1.9.3 on a Rocky Linux 8.8 box. Need to get octoprint to use /dev/video0 for the webcam if that's possible. It was working a month or so ago and after some idle time on the printer it's not working now. Not sure what changed to cause it to not be working now. I don't recall doing anything that would have affected the webcam in any way.

Been fighting with this for a couple hours this morning and I got webcamd working. Installed from webcamd · PyPI

Had to tweak a few things like the path in the webcamd.service file and parameters but it all seems back to normal now.
