USB Camera not working on IMX6

Contributor III

Hello, I am having an issue where the USB Camera I am plugging into the board is being found but not displaying any video. When doing "lsusb" it shows it is there and the program I am trying to use it on shows a device has been found. When running cheese no video shows as well. I am using this Ubuntu image - 

If anyone knows how I could fix this please let me know.

Hello rthomas,


Check is the video is in /dev/videox where X is the numer of instance the mx6 is open, as example

ls /dev/video2, and you can add gstreamer

gst-launch-1.0 v4l2src device=/dev/video2

Thank you for the response!

When doing this it outputs:

"Setting pipeline to PAUSED ...

Pipeline is live and does not need PREROLL ...

Setting pipeline to PLAYING ...

New clock: GSTSystemClock "

No screen pops up with the live video output and nothing other than that output in the terminal occurs.
