I got a camera module over USB, which is supposed to support MJPG format allowing better resolution/framerate than the VYUY default codec.

After several tests on my Debian, I could not make the MJPG format to work: both, using my webbrowser and a test application in OpenCV.

I am starting to consider if Debian does not support it by default, which the following questions seems to corroborate.

Using MJPG stream as a webcam source

Saturated blue image in MJPG streaming with a Raspberry Pi and a webcam

My question is: How to allows MJPEG codec to be used, or how to ensure it is available and that it is the camera not supporting it?

Could I ask some explanation on the topic?

  • which is supposed to support MJPG ... is that a it supports MJPG or is it a i don't know if it supports MJPG?
