I am testing the new Raspberry Pi 2 with its camera board.
I have setup my Pi2 with Raspbian.
I have connected the camera on the CSI port, enabled the camera module from
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade && sudo apt-get install cheese
I was able to test still and video features.
Now, how I'd like be able to check the cam on
cheese or use it from my browser e.g. hangout, Firefox WebRTC ...
On Cheese the camera module is not found whereas a USB cam shows up? Same from a browser.
Why the RPi Cam module isn't found on Cheese or Browser? and can I fix it?
UPDATE when using UV4L driver
Installed the UV4L driver, I can now select the camera board from the browser when I try to start a simple webrtc session e.g. http://opentokrtc.com/testroom However when I do share
Camera Board OV5647 I get a full screen snap (frozen), so I don't think it's getting a video stream from the cam, but that's already a great step forward.
