    So thanks to TPmodding, I am pretty much up and running using WLED (thanks for the suggestion!)

    I initially had some issue getting things set up, until I realised that I was running the old version of Hyperion and HyperCon :p

    I am currently using 2.0.0 alpha5. To my surprise, my cheapo capture card from Aliexpress which was meant to be an STK1160 and isn't, started working and auto-detected when I installed v2alpha5. I didn't think it was compatible, so it was a nice surprise! :) After much testing and calibration (and reboots) I shut down and moved everything to it's final resting place, but when I booted up again it doesn't show a signal from the card o_O

    It's still listed under lsusb:

    Code:
    Bus 001 Device 005: ID 18ec:5555 Arkmicro Technologies Inc.
    
    And v4l2:

    Code:
    USB2.0 PC CAMERA (usb-3f980000.usb-1.4):
       /dev/video0
       /dev/video1
    
    and in Hyperion:

    But no longer in Hyperion's source selector:

    But it definitely was before.

    I have tried manually entering /dev/video0 and /dev/video1, no joy.

    How can I get this card working again? It obviously is capable of working, and it worked really well! I fail to understand how a reboot has killed it from being usable? o_O

    Funny thing is, if you use the button to stop / start the USB capture service, the device briefly appears in the source list then vanishes. I am wondering if this is a bug.

    This morning I tried reinstalling on a fresh Raspbian and going through everything to make sure the settings are ok but I cannot get it to work again. So weird because it was working well. Is there anything else I can try before I order another stick?

    The preview window is black. Before it showed the stream.

    but with the previous version it works, did you retested it?

    I started on Hyperion old and it never worked. I moved to NG alpha 5 and it worked, then for no apparent reason it stopped. Still on alpha 5.
