USB Capture via ezcap269 not working

  • Hello all,


    I am running Hyperion 2.0.12 on Ubuntu 20.04 that is installed on an older HP ProBook laptop. Hyperion is connected to a Wled instance, and this connection works when I am using the built-in webcam as the capturing source.


    The USB grabber I am using is an ezcap269, it shows up in hyperion as "ezcap U3 capture: ezcap U3 capt". However, when I select this as the source all I get is a black screen in the live video window.


    I would appreciate any help, thanks.

  • Test the grabber with VLC or other software on the laptop.

  • Use a different USB port best USB3.0.

    You can also try a powered USB hub.
