I did not find anything wrong in your log file. Please wait for a moderator to assist.

#3

What kind of camera device are you trying to use exactly?

#4

my usb webcam which my pc recognizes as sirius USB2.0 and droid cam (my phone via usb)

#5

IIRC Droid Cam has some issues with Citra. Does your USB webcam work in other programs?

#6

yes it works on bandicam skype and discord

#7

Could you please do the following:

  • Open the log console
  • Do a preview in the Camera tab with your USB Camera
  • Copy the content of the log console to a txt and update it here

Thanks!

all right. Thank you. I’ll look into it when I get time, but again, likely that’s an issue of your camera. I’m not sure if we can fix it, but I’ll try.

my friend has a better camera than mine his doesnt work too and i asked this on discord too and someone said it maybe is a bug at qt

#11

That is strange. I have a cheap no-brand web cam from China and it works with Citra.

error7
This Shows On the Debug box when i try to use a camera in-game

That likely isn’t relevant. That looks like a 3DS service error, a webcam that won’t even work in Citra’s interface is much more higher up in the software stack.
