MMM-Facial-Recognition-Tools & PiCam



  • Hi,

    I got a probleme with capture.py when i use my pi cam

    Traceback (most recent call last):
      File "capture.py", line 41, in 
        capture.capture(preview)
      File "/home/pi/MagicMirror/modules/MMM-Facial-Recognition-Tools/lib/capture.py", line 40, in capture
        camera = config.get_camera(preview)
      File "/home/pi/MagicMirror/modules/MMM-Facial-Recognition-Tools/lib/config.py", line 101, in get_camera
        return webcam.OpenCVCapture(device_id=0)
      File "/home/pi/MagicMirror/modules/MMM-Facial-Recognition-Tools/lib/webcam.py", line 29, in __init__
        self._camera.open()
    TypeError: Required argument 'device' (pos 1) not found
    

    When i use a logitech usb cam no problem.

    With the picam connected i try this and it works

    Some ideas how to resolve this ?



  • Did you ever figure out what the solution was? I’m just now starting this and am running into the same issue.



  • sudo pip install picamera
