Unable to stream cam with Motion

i try to stream my RaspberryPi Cam v2.1 with motion, the motion server is running but when I access the HTTP (from a other computer) server I get a gray window with “unable to open video device”.
I camera is shown under /dev/video0. Is it maybe a problem with “palette format”?

this is from the motion.log file:

cap.driver: “tegra-video”

cap.card: “vi-output, imx219 6-0010”

cap.bus_info: “platform:54080000.vi:0”

hello Zedezz,

may I know what’s your use-case.
for example, would you like to stream the camera preview frame from Nano platform through ethernet to your remote setup?

There is no update from you for a period, assuming this is not an issue any more.

Hi Zedezz,

Have you managed to get issue resolved? Any result can be shared?
