Unable to create camera object with a Logitech camera

I’m a newcomer in AI trying to enter this field of IT with Jetson nano development kit. I am in the course
Getting Started with AI on Jetson Nano (https://courses.nvidia.com/courses/course-v1:DLI+C-RX-02+V1/course/).
After I have run the Jetson Nano Developer Kit in a headless configuration, I connect the kit with a usb camera (https://www.cnet.com/products/logitech-quickcam-pro-4000-web-camera-series/) and run the “hello_camera” lab.

After running !ls -ltrh /dev/video*, it output
crw-rw----+ 1 root video 81, 0 Jun 14 22:08 /dev/video0 ,which is correct.

But when I want to create camera object by

from jetcam.usb_camera import USBCamera
camera = USBCamera(width=224, height=224, capture_width=640, capture_height=480, capture_device=0)

It returns

[b]---------------------------------------------------------------------------
RuntimeError Traceback (most recent call last)
/usr/local/lib/python3.6/dist-packages/jetcam-0.0.0-py3.6.egg/jetcam/usb_camera.py in init(self, *args, **kwargs)
23 if not re:
—> 24 raise RuntimeError(‘Could not read image from camera.’)
25

RuntimeError: Could not read image from camera.

During handling of the above exception, another exception occurred:

29

RuntimeError: Could not initialize camera. Please see error trace.

I have tried to find solution on the forum but null. Is this occurs because of the camera I am using?

Hi,
If your USB camera support UVC driver, you may check

Hi,
https://linuxtv.org/downloads/v4l-dvb-apis/uapi/v4l/pixfmt-yuv420.html
YU12 should be I420 in gstreamer. Please try

$ export DISPLAY=:0(or 1)
$ gst-launch-1.0 v4l2src device=/dev/video0 ! video/x-raw,format=I420,width=640,height=480,framerate=15/1 ! xvimagesink

Thank you. I have tried your code.
After running
export DISPLAY=:0 gst-launch-1.0 v4l2src device=/dev/video0 ! video/x-raw,format=I420,width=640,height=480,framerate=15/1 ! xvimagesink

Output:

And it stops at (New clock: GstSystemClock) with no reaction.

Hi,
You may firstly check if you can capture in running a ‘v4l2-ctl’ commands.
Or try other USB cameras such as Logitech c930e.
