& congrats. Great stuff.
You wrote you are using a C270.
The quality of your pics is fantastic. I couldn’t get over 352×288, otherwise the cam stopes randomly.
So what distro/ software are you using?
Larger photos cause the camera to take more current for longer from the USB 5V line. So I think you’re using an older board with the thermal fuses. Short them out. See on the web (e.g. my first Pi flight) for details.
I use the latest Raspbian. I used Debian before and that had a USB lockup that would happen randomly, often after a few hours.
Thanks for your quick response.
I have a newer Raspi with 512MB Ram, working as a home server,
so I’ll try this thingi as the webcamserver. Thanks again, also for the fuse tip.
But I must say, (without trying yet) that I had the same habbit (dieing randomly) when using an USB-Hub. Used always the uptodate Raspbian and the newest Hexxeh-kernels.
thanks for your advice. My tests had no success with a uptodate 512Mb Pi without the USB fuses. What I then recognized, I tried without Wlan, was it was working some minutes longer. I also tried an USB-hub, also faulty.
So; I’ve given up. Thanks again.
