[desktop] Video recording is not working

  • Hello there.
    I'd like to video recording with usb camera on qml application for linux.
    I use "QML Camera Example declarative-camera".

    CameraButton {
        text: "Record"
        onClicked: camera.videoRecorder.record()

    when I clicked "Record" button then I can see error message on Qt creator's application output window.
    CameraBin error: "Device '/dev/video0' is busy"
    CameraBin error: "Internal data flow error."
    Next I clicked "Stop" button then clicked "Record" button again.
    I can see it.
    CameraBin warning: "Can't record audio fast enough"
    I don't know how to do but sometome I can see it.
    ** (declarative-camera:439): CRITICAL **: No headers or buffers on pad muxer:video_941036892

    I wonder if I have to change setting on linux or something?

    Thanks for any advice.

    Is there anything else also accessing /dev/video0 beside your application ?
