Wireplumber / pipewire update broke my webcam

Hey,

I did -Rdd wireplumber and installed back pipewire-media-session but my webcam is still broken

What should I do?

Best,
Seb

Re: Wireplumber / pipewire update broke my webcam

sudo pacman -Syu

And reboot afterwards. Does it work now?

Wireplumber is the recommended session manager now. Consider re-installing wireplumber together with pipewire-pulse and reboot afterwards which should work as well.

@joeyCorleone I did it, also have installed wireplumber with piewire-pulse. Skype is still not detecting the webcam.

Re: Wireplumber / pipewire update broke my webcam

wireplumber should have no effect on the visibility of your webcam in terms of providing video input. Why do you think that is the cause? Do you have a node under /dev/video ? Did you check  dmesg/kernel logs? Did you test with other tools like v4l2-ctl ?

Apparently it does, see below.

Re: Wireplumber / pipewire update broke my webcam

Uninstall pipewire-v4l2 package and edit:

/etc/wireplumber/main.lua.d/90-enable-all.lua

disable v4l2 monitor (--) and reboot:

-- Load devices
alsa_monitor.enable()
--v4l2_monitor.enable()


Excuse my poor English.

When I ran "cheese" through the terminal, error mentioned pipewire not being able to make a transaction. Yes, I do have /dev/video1 and /dev/video0 - none of them worked in vlc test or v412-ctl tests.

Vlc log below. I'm not versed enough to deal with dmesg/kernel logs

I did not have this package installed on the system, nor the file.

I did not have this package installed on the system, nor the file.

If you want to change any wireplumber setting you have to do a manual copy first:

sudo cp -R /usr/share/wireplumber /etc/

And then disable v4l2_monitor.


Excuse my poor English.

Didn't work, any way to test if I did it right?

Re: Wireplumber / pipewire update broke my webcam

- Has your webcam worked fine before wireplumber replaced pipewire-media-session?
- Does video playback work?
- Does audio playback work?

What is the output of:

systemctl --user status wireplumber pipewire pipewire-pulse
pacman -Ss pipewire-media-session
