I have some trouble with my usb camera. It currently works fine for 2-5 minutes after which it turns to a gray screen. I have kept it on for quite some time but the stream doesn’t seem to come back online. I have checked and tried the following things.
Resizing the image from the companion camera interface re-enables the stream but it will drop again in a few minutes.
Opened the stream with VLC in debug mode. Still dropped after a few minutes from the log I concluded that the companion stopped sending frames and the connection timed out.
The internet connection is still performing at the same levels as before the drop.
The camera is still detected by the companion pi.
I’m kinda at a loss on how to further debug this problem. So any help or suggestions are welcome.
Tomorrow I have acces again to the rover and will post all the technical details of the set-up.
