DWQA QuestionsCategory: PiCapture Supportraspivid capture error
jsy asked 3 years ago

I’m using SD capture board of Lintest systems.
SD capture board was operated well yesterday, but camera, which was connected to capture board was damaged today.
So I’m testing the capture board without a camera.
Does not SD capture board operate properly without video input like camera?
The only differnt thing between today and yesterday is a damage in the camera
For reference, the command like ‘raspivid -md 6 -awbg 1.0,1.0 -awb off -ex off -o’ shows below messages 
mmal: mmal_vc_component_create: failed to create component ‘vc.ril.camera’ (1:ENOMEM)
mmal: mmal_component_create_core: could not create component ‘vc.ril.camera’ (1)
mmal: Failed to create camera component
mmal: main: Failed to create camera component
mmal: Camera is not detected. Please check carefully the camera module is installed correctly

As described In the documentation, you must have active video supplied to the PiCapture board before starting raspivid or any other capture software.  The blue LED indicates that a good video signal has been detected.
If you receive an MMAL error you will likely need to reboot the RPi to reset the camera drivers.
