Hi Guys,

When trying to run the USB_CAM with a raspberry pi cam connected with a flex cable I am getting the following error:

***[ERROR] [1536479863.709252536]: VIDIOC_S_FMT error 22, Invalid argument***

This is the launch file:

<launch>
  <node name="usb_cam" pkg="usb_cam" type="usb_cam_node" output="screen" >
    <param name="video_device" value="/dev/video0" />
    <param name="image_width" value="640" />
    <param name="image_height" value="480" />
    <param name="pixel_format" value="yuyv" />
    <param name="camera_frame_id" value="usb_cam" />
    <param name="framerate" value="30" />
    <param name="io_method" value="mmap"/>
  </node>
</launch>

When changing the resolution to 1024x768 it works fine.

How can I lower the resolution to 640x480??

Hi Gil404, have you managed this, I'm having the same need.

My error is: Unable to convert 'bgr8' image for display: 'Image is wrongly formed: height * step != size or 308 * 1230 != 399360'

And my launcher file is: camerav2_410x308_30fps.launch (it came with the installation)
