Cam won't work | exit status 6 | Failed to set video format

Post by Arjenlodder » Wed Aug 17, 2011 2:55 pm

Somehow it was the new pci usb-card that bugged. Reïnstalled it and now it works...
Kinda odd.

Hey guys.

Os: Ubuntu 11.04 Natty Narwhal
Zm: Zoneminder v1.24.2 (from the package manager)
Cam: Sweex WC150 series

The cam simply won't work in ZoneMinder, it (the source) turns from orange to red to orange to red... And when i click it it won't work.
The cam does work in luvcview.
Info and debug below:

And sometimes instead of the "Input/output error" i get the famous: "Invalid argument".

Zoneminder settings

Extra info
I've got another cam running correctly, it works great. (Logitech C500).
And i had to adjust the shmal and shmmax settings, so that not the problem i guess.

This cam is running on another USB bus than the other cam.

Thank you
