Jolla-Camera shows coloured bars and gray grains. (Seems to be some Gstreamer default)

How do I fix this?
(It’s not hardware failure because the camera is usable with an Android app.)
Background: After upgrading to 22.214.171.124 the camera app wasn’t starting up/crashing.
Read in a forum post that deleting the contents of /home/nemo/.cache/gstreamer-1.0/ would fix the issue.
Deleting the cache did get the app to start up but it can’t seem to access the camera anymore and instead shows the GStreamer test bars and gray grains.
Also read elsewhere that “/usr/bin/killall minimediaservice” would fix the camera but that doesn’t help either.
I’m unable to uninstall/re-install the camera app
