Oh sorry, I missed the numerical difference! sv105 not sv305. I was thinking since you said you wanted to connect an sv camera and use it as a guider but that the other driver works, that you must be trying to connect two 305 cameras, but I missed that it was the 105.
Yes I think since it says that sv105 is a UVC camera, it should hopefully be controllable via avfoundation in ffmpeg. Let me see if I can fix the driver next week.
sad face icon: Kstars and Ekos still crash when Ekos starts INDI Server and INDI Webcam is selected as one of the cameras.
The INDI server launches with the other drivers, just fine.
This happens on macOS Monterey and High Sierra.
Sorry I didn’t get a chance to look at it again after he last time we spoke. I would like to figure this out. As far as I can tell it crashes if you start a profile in Ekos with the driver, but if it already crashed and is already running and you just try to connect to it then it works fine. But starting the driver crashes it. Is this right?
I am not sure yet, but I think it might be related to OS X and its newish protections (I think it started with Mavericks) from programs accessing the camera or screen etc. It is very annoying since I specifically developed INDI Webcam for OS X because there was no V4L2 driver on OS X, so I tried to make a new driver that could do something similar. It might also be that some property hasn't been properly initialized when Ekos tries to access it. As I am entering my summer break now, I should have more time to try to look into it.
But as I was saying before, if I try to start INDI Webcam and then encounter the bug you mentioned, it brings down KStars. But then if I start KStars up again, and then tell it "No" to the question about whether I want it to start up a new INDIserver, it works then. You might also have to say yes if OS X asks you if INDI webcam can access the camera (the aforementioned MacOS issue).
Another thing you might try is to select to NOT have it auto connect the devices, so you have more control of the devices and settings without it crashing right away. And if you saved the profile options for INDI webcam, you can delete the settings file. Note that if you try the IP Webcam feature of INDI webcam, it should not crash at all.
