So for some reason, the Camera application in Juno is not initializing my webcam and then freezes after a few seconds.

When ran in the terminal, the following message appears:

(io.elementary.camera:9327): Clutter-Gst-WARNING **: 22:00:44.437: Internal data stream error.

Any other video application has no issue opening the video device.

This was not an issue in Loki.

Here's the information on my Camera:

description: Video product: Integrated_Webcam_HD vendor: CN06307G7248761BE247A03 physical id: 4 bus info: usb@1:4 version: 57.28 capabilities: usb-2.00 configuration: driver=uvcvideo maxpower=500mA speed=480Mbit/s


  • I have a similar issue: $ io.elementary.camera (io.elementary.camera:6083): Clutter-Gst-WARNING **: 13:32:08.090: Internal data stream error. while the webcam was working fine in Loki.

This issue is a problem with the Juno OS, which requires a bug to be submitted for a fix. However, you should install a third-party webcam application to use the camera. One of the best third-party camera applications for Juno OS is Cheese.
