disclaimer: I am new to OpenCV and Raspberry Pi, although I have a fair amount of experience with linux systems in general
Here is what I am attempting to accomplish:
- I am trying to use a Raspberry Pi with OpenCV (version 3.0.0) to read a live video stream from a GoPro (or any camera with a live video output).
Here is my setup:
- I have am running Raspbian 3.18.16
- I have an STK1160 video capture card (USB connection)
- I have read that in my version of Raspbian, the necessary drivers for the STK1160 (v4l2) are pre-installed. I have verified this with
When I try to load the driver with
sudo modprobe bcm2835-v4l2, I get the following error:
modprobe: ERROR: could not insert 'bcm2835_v4l2': Operation not permitted. I am able to read in video with the camera, so it is not an issue with the camera's connection (however, the video feed is bad and looks like this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NHOFd74NCD0 must be a problem with the driver?)
In addition, when I run
dmesgI get the following error:
bcm2835-v4l2: error -1 while loading driver
I've spent about two weeks searching for an answer to this problem and the closest issue that I've found to my problem is on this link: Camera, Ubuntu, modprobe bcm2835-v4l2 ERROR: could not insert 'bcm2835_v4l2': Operation not permitted
This user seems to have a very similar problem. However, I have a Raspberry Pi and I am not running Ubuntu. (I tried to ask this question on that thread but I don't have enough "reputation" yet).
Has anyone encountered this issue with a Raspberry Pi before?
