usb cam is not recognized but works

  • Hi folks

    I have installed all modules and dependencies for face recognition. but if i want to start this: python the following error message appears:

    pi@raspberrypi:~/MagicMirror/modules/MMM-Facial-Recognition-Tools $ python
    Remember to set the name list environment variable FACE_USERS
    Using default FACE_ALGORITM: 1
    Loading training data…
    mmal: mmal_vc_component_create: failed to create component ‘’ (1:ENOMEM)
    mmal: mmal_component_create_core: could not create component ‘’ (1)

    But with “fswebcam image.jpg” I can shoot some photos with SSH.

    Any ideas?
    Thanks very much for your help.


  • Hi, from my current knowledge the script only works for the picamera, because the picamera module that is imported in the script is used to capture images.
