    I have connected an udoo camera to my quad (blue to the outside) and enabled it in the config program. If I enter either of the suggested gst-launch commands it prints "Setting pipeline to PAUSED ..." and then the desktop freezes with no mouse cursor and no clock update. I have to reset it.

    Have I missed something out, or is the camera faulty?

    Hi there nophead,
    on UDOObuntu 2 Beta 1 the UDOO Camera is still not supported. Are you using UDOObuntu 2? Anyway this camera-bug will be fixed soon.

    I don't think so, this is what I have:

    Distributor ID: Ubuntu
    Description: Ubuntu 12.04 LTS

    Hi there,
    so you are using UDOObuntu 1.
    The troubleshooting routine is thus:
    • first, check if the camera is properly attached by following the instructions in this videotutorial;
    • then, try with a webcam utility once the camera is enabled in the configurator.
    If the problem persists, tell us.

    That was the tutorial I followed which suggested testing it with:
    gst-launch-0.10 mfw_v4lsrc ! ffmpegcolorspace ! ximagesink​

    It seems to work fine with the webcam utility, thanks. I will ignore the gst-launch stuff.
