As of late, if I try to take a photo with my webcam using Cheese, it fails. When the app first opens, the picture is displayed from the camera. But when I take the photo, it gives and error that “there was an error playing video from the camera.” I ran cheese from terminal to get more info as to what is happening, and here is the output when the failure happens:
(cheese:4325): cheese-WARNING **: Device ‘/dev/video0’ is busy: gstv4l2object.c(2838): gst_v4l2_object_set_format (): /GstCameraBin:camerabin/GstWrapperCameraBinSrc:camera_source/GstBin:bin35/GstV4l2Src:video_source:
Call to S_FMT failed for YU12 @ 1280x720: Device or resource busy
Anyone able to duplicate this problem? Anyone able to help troubleshoot? I know this issue is not Antergos specific, but since we’re all friends here It used to work just fine, and I have no idea what introduced the failure.
