StreamCam on MS Teams

TomRaus 21 Reputation points

I have installed MS Teams and got it working pretty well. However, my Logitech StreamCam isn't working in all video modes, hence I need to set it very specifically (1280x720, 30fps, MJPG).

Output from v4l2-ctl --all

Format Video Capture:
        Width/Height      : 1280/720
        Pixel Format      : 'MJPG' (Motion-JPEG)
        Field             : None

        Colorspace        : sRGB
        Transfer Function : Default (maps to sRGB)
        YCbCr/HSV Encoding: Default (maps to ITU-R 601)
        Quantization      : Default (maps to Full Range)
        Flags             :

        Pixel Aspect: 1/1

Selection Video Capture: crop_bounds, Left 0, Top 0, Width 1280, Height 720, Flags: 
Streaming Parameters Video Capture:
        Capabilities     : timeperframe
        Frames per second: 30.000 (30/1)
        Read buffers     : 0

Whenever I change go into a video call or conf call, MS Teams automatically changes the settings of my webcam to NV12 instead of MJPG. Is there any way to configure or prevent MS Teams of making changes to the webcam settings?

    Hi Tom!

    I am afraid there is no related ways to configure MS Teams of changing to the webcam settings.

    If you need these function, it recommend you vote for it in Microsoft Teams UserVoice. (Link: Some new features would be added to the services based on customers' feedback in the future, and your good ideas will be very helpful for them to improve the service. Your time, understanding and cooperation will be highly appreciated.
