Quite some months since you helped to get this part working. We were then
distracted by other topics to make the camera driver really work but now I
want to start over...
The status is:
* the camera driver gets probed successfully
* the chip responds
* all device files are created (this was the patch discussed above)
* we can apply mediactl
* we can run mplayer
* but we get a green image (meaning: no video stream from camera)
The core reason seems to be that the camera isn't powered on again when we open
the video stream. And ov965x_open() is not called.
So I think our driver is missing something else to be registered correctly.
Maybe, please can you take a second look into the camera driver and especially
why ov965x_open() is not called:
although the ov965x_sd_internal_ops are defined.
Our shell script to display a video stream is:
I think as soon as we get the camera enabled when needed we can then debug
video format issues etc.
Or whom should we contact with this question?
BR and thanks,
