Webcams on MacOS

What is the problem?

Cannot get Webcam working on MACOS High Sierra. Webcam works using normal camera app

What did you already try to solve it?

Reloaded everything for cam again, tried using the Yosemite config

Have you tried running in safe mode?


Did running in safe mode solve the problem?

Hi curleynerd,

did you get this resolved or do you still need help?


Hi Jattie:

With the new code release this is now working perfectly!


Good to hear, do you mean Octoprint 1.9 update?

No, the code created for octoprint on MACOS webcam support. GitHub - meska/mjpeg_stream_webcam: Webcam Streamer for Octoprint MacOs
