I have a BlueROV2 R1 (stock build, no additions) that I just upgraded to the latest version of BlueOS with a Pixhawk controller updated to Pixhawk 1 - 4.10. After updating to BlueOS I have lost the camera feed (everything else seems to be working). I have gone through the troubleshooting steps other than pulling the RPi completely.
When I log into the web interface and click on video I just get a message “No Video Devices Available”.
Is this maybe a driver issue for the older units/cameras? I haven’t been able to find any instructutions about that.
Hi! Just pumping up the topic here since we are at least three with the same problem after the same upgrade. @UBICA here it is another case like ours. @EliotBR suggested to update qgroundcontrol to 4.2.5, did you try this already? I still didn’t have the time to test it.
Here are the link to the topics that are similar to this one:
I hope this issue gets more attention, since this happened after we spend money in something that was supposed to make our lives easier. I’m glad that @EliotBR gave an advice, but from the commits that I saw in qgroundcontrol repo I’m quite skeptical that it will change something. As soon as I test this, I’ll comment here. @UBICA can we centralize the comments for this issue here? It has a better tittle and it is more recent. By the way, any updates from you two @UBICA and @mdares ?
No updates here - I am hoping to put a full day into it in the coming week, but am honestly past my depth in troubleshooting. I think disassembly and trying to just get the RPi and the camera working standalone is the next step for me.
Ok, that’s a Raspberry Pi camera (not a USB camera), which is not supported in BlueOS 1.0 (the latest “stable” release).
If you turn on Pirate Mode you should be able to update to a recent BlueOS 1.1 beta version (from the Version Chooser), after which there’s a new settings icon in the bottom right of the Video Streams page where you can enable Raspberry Pi camera support, then reboot BlueOS and the camera should be detected.
This is about the streams you have configured in BlueOS, and the way you’re connecting to BlueOS. Is the Raspberry Pi camera appearing as an option in the Video Streams page (in mine it appears as “mmal service 16.1”), and is there a stream configured for it?
Our Low-Light HD USB Camera does not have the same mounting hole locations as a Raspberry Pi camera, so they cannot use the same mount.
I’m sorry for delay in reply, but today we were working on field and issues with the camera arose again…Everything was working yesterday but today suddenly the problem with the camera came up again. We are wasting time and money. I believe that @Bluerobotics has to give some answers since the last few emails the assistance didn’t even consider us.
@UBICA do you have some other email we can respond to? I’ve been told our support team has responded to multiple emails that didn’t seem to get through, and from the emails I have access to in our system it seems there was a similar issue last month between your email address and multiple people in our sales department.
Feel free to send an email address as a private message to me here on the forum, and I can pass it along to our email support people.
Since this is happening with multiple people, I think it would be nice for you guys to share the solution that you found through private messages @EliotBR and @UBICA. I stopped trying to fix this issue, but when I come back, it would be nice to know if there is a common solution.
Hi Matosinho, sorry for the delay.
We changed the camera and the video streaming started working again. One day everything crashed again and after 2 hours it started working again. At the moment we have about a 1.5 second delay in streaming but at least we have been able to get the work done. We are now trying to figure out why there is a delay and why the streaming sometimes crashes unpredictably. We will try to reinstall the newly released software versions and see if the problems are resolved. We will update you as soon as possible.
