    any thought in how to make a webcam not autoadjust using a v4l2src pipeline?
    Under Linux..

    sometimes you can set those parameters when loading the driver (modprobe). search for the name of your camera driver and see what options it can accept.

    Thank you both.
    I found this:

    ~$ uvcdynctrl -c

    Listing available controls for device video0:
      Zoom, Absolute
      Backlight Compensation
      Sharpness
      White Balance Temperature
      Power Line Frequency
      Gamma
      Hue
      Saturation
      Contrast
      Brightness

    So, it seems this camera has no way to be set to manual.
    It's a hardware issue.
