So I think the title says it all. I recently purchased an ESP32 CAM in India for a pretty cheap price.
It looks like an AI Thinker but doesn’t have the tag on the chip itself. Nonetheless, to get it setup before my use case I decided to test the camera. I loaded up the CameraWebServer example and set my camera type to AI thinker.
The code uploads successfully and runs successfully. I can open up the IP address and it shows the page. However whenever I try to get a still or start a stream, it gives this error:
[E][camera.c:1344] esp_camera_fb_get(): Failed to get the frame on time!
Camera capture failed
It’s pretty annoying and this happens in both 5V power and 3V power. The camera does physically get a bit hot after loading the website. Oh yeah, I have an OV 2460 Camera attached to the ESP.
Any advice is appreciated. Thanks!
