Webcam stops working after a certain time

Hi there,

probably an old one...

I have two Creality Ender 3 Pro printers, one a year old and a new one month old (version with the temperature reporting issue). They both are working fine.

I have installed two cheap webcams on them and they seem to work fine, for a while. After some time, a day or two maybe, they just stop working.

I can reboot, replug everything and it comes back.

I was just wondering if there's a way they can NOT stop working and if its related to the webcams, in case I need to return them. Its very non-productive and very annoying.

Octoprint Version: Version 1.5.3

Let me know if you need logs and stuff

Thank you for your time!

I can't tell you how to fix that problem but you can restart the cams with

sudo service webcamd restart

in ssh :slight_smile:
