Hello,

When trying to run the Web server for the RaspTank, the camera will not start.


pi@raspberrypi:~ $ sudo python3 adeept_rasptank/server/webServer.py
......................pause..........................
Starting camera thread.
VIDEOIO ERROR: V4L: can't open camera by index 0
Exception in thread Thread-3:
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/lib/python3.7/threading.py", line 917, in _bootstrap_inner
    self.run()
  File "/usr/lib/python3.7/threading.py", line 865, in run
    self._target(*self._args, **self._kwargs)
  File "/home/pi/adeept_rasptank/server/base_camera.py", line 94, in _thread
    for frame in frames_iterator:
  File "/home/pi/adeept_rasptank/server/camera_opencv.py", line 425, in frames
    raise RuntimeError('Could not start camera.')
RuntimeError: Could not start camera.

Any help would be appreciated!

Fixed my own problem! It would help if I plugged in the camera to the correct port!

Great. You plugged in the place of display?
Another source of camera error is the sunny connector not properly pressed or the flat bad oriented. I wrote this if someone search for the problem.
