I have Raspberry Pi used for Octoprint and I am using MSI Starcam 370i with it to monitor the prints. I know this camera has IR LED control, because this option is available on Windows 7 or Windows 10 computer. However the command v4l2-ctl -l does not list LED control.

Here is output from v4l2-ctl --all
