USB lowlight camera to Rpi


(Rachel) #1

I just recently replaced the raspi camera with the lowlight usb camera and am having trouble trying to get video feed from it.

I have tried to restart the camera by using ~/companion/RPI2/Raspbian
and running it by ./start_video.sh

This is what I get:

GroverRPI

It’s been like that for a while now and I’m wondering if this is the way to go about it.


USB Low Light Camera Connection to Companion

Hi ARD,

This appears not to be a default companion installation, please follow the instructions here:

Thanks!! I have video feed now , but it’s unstable as in the colour would just disappear sometimes

Is there a way to fix this?

@patrickelectric I thought the grayness was because the camera is a low-light camera and I was in a brightly lit environment, but I tested it in side a closed up box and when the camera is moving, it still glitches the same way. Any ideas?

@ARD You must use Windows 10.

Ok, will try that. Thanks!
