I’m trying to make a first pass at opening up my webcam and doing some image labelling …
I’m trying to test a USB webcam .
The webcam is being recognized by
ls /dev/video* as /video1.
I’m trying to follow along this tutorial as well as this one and this one.
I’ve been able to install "
gstreamer1.0-plugins-bad-videoparsers (I got an error … which I think can be ignored because it should only be needed for IP cameras).
Either way, when I run my test script, I get the error:
... GStreamer: pipeline have not been created, along with a “could not read from resource” and “unable to start pipeline” error.
When trying to open Cheese, the camera is listed under “Devices” … but greyed out.
Any ideas would be appreciated.
Any help would be appreciated
