I'm currently using the debian OS on my pi. For my application I installed Python 2.7.3 and pygame 1.9.1. When I try to start the camera object:
I get the following error:
EnvironmentError: ioctl(VIDIOC_STREAMON) failure : 4008, Unknown error 4008
When I run my program, I can see the small green led on the camera light up, but then it quickly turns off and I see the error above on my terminal.
I used Rpi-Update to install the video driver for my quickcam pro 5000, and the device appears as /dev/video0.
Really at a loss here...anyone get there webcam working in debian with pygame?
