Web cam does not show video

This post was originally published on this site

Hello. I hope you all are fine!


Im having a problem with the webcam video (always with usb cams). The VM ware software shown the webcam connected to host and also the SO recognize it (/dev/video0) but its not possible to get video. We need the video to implement a CV software for facial recognition application. And yes, I went to tools->show all usb devices. etc…


it looks like there is a problem with the video buffer. There is a way to troubleshoot it?


Thanks and best regards.
