I want to turn off auto white balance for my raspivid stream. However, when doing that, the image turns completely black. Why? And how do I fix this?
Here's another question/answer similar to this one that seems to fix an issue like yours. Maybe that fits your situation? If so, please let us know. Thanks, and good luck!
