PiCapture Not finding the Camera Reply To: Not finding the Camera


Thank you, yes it did, I found it here:

Why do I get the error "ImportError: No module named builtins" when trying to use PiVideo?

I also want to share what I did so that maybe someone faces the same problems:

For Raspbian Jessie Lite – Minimal image based on Debian Jessie

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo rpi-update
sudo pip install future
sudo pip install pyserial
sudo pip install serial
sudo apt-get install python-smbus

Then Reboot


sudo pivideo -q source

I got

Active video source is: hdmi

But still when I write: sudo raspivid -md 6 -o

I get the RED LED on for a while and then off

When I write in the terminal: sudo pivideo -q all

I get:

PiCapture HD1 is ready
Active video: Mode 5
Selected video source is: hdmi
Raspberry pi camera port is not active

What is the camera port means? and why its not active?

Thank you
