Camera settings

Recommended Posts

Posted · Camera settings



Is there a way to change camera settings? I've added an USB camera and it works, but unfortunately it makes poor decisions regarding auto-exposure. Bumping the resolution (at the expense of fps) would also be nice.


Also, while I've tried to see the original camera using the ip address (http://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:8081/?action=stream), I haven't had success accessing it again. For my purpose it would be nice to be able to see both cameras while printing. I've tried port 8080 (now USB camera on this port), 8079, 8081, but couldn't find the original camera on any ports.

I'm comfortable with ssh so that would be no issue. Also, I've read this topic, but while I've found the mjpg-streamer@.service file, my changes does not seem to matter
