Pi losing 3rd party webcam

Fri Jul 06, 2018 8:29 pm

MODs, if you feel this should be moved, feel free.

I have three Pis stacked, each serving a different purpose. One of them is running an owncloud server an motion, with an attached webcam - Microsoft (spit) VX3000 I think.

It works fine, for w while, but then loses the camera, and the only solution is to reboot. Then it works fine for a while, and loses it again.

A while can be up to 5 - 6 hours.

I can buy a different cam if needs be, but what might cause this.

The Pi only boots /boot from the SDCard - rootfs is on an NFS drive, so it isn't an SD issue.
Headless PI. OMG, someone cut it's head off. Oh, hang on. it didn't have one to start with.
