View Full Version : creating an AVI

January 22, 2010, 00:45:55
I am trying to create an AVI file using the invoke node with startavicapture I used the IMAQ get filter names.vi to find out what compressor my computer has. It comes back with DV video encoder, Indeo Video, MJPEG compressor etc... but when I use these as strings to feed into the invoke node and also set the file path I get an unknown error on the invoke node. After This error occurs everytime I try to run my program the IC open device.vi has an error saying Error -2146828259 an option is not available, e.g. you called setFlipH and the VideoCaptureDevice does not support flipping in IC_OpenDevice.vi ->image capture.vi and the IC setvideoformat.vi also has an error claiming that supplied videoformat not supported in IC_setvideoformat.vi->image capture.vi how do I fix this so it will create an AVI?

I have two AVI capture sample VIs for LabVIEW 8.2 attached to this post.
May be the strings returned by LabVIEW are not in the correct format. Since I have no sample LabiVIEW project from you, I can not check this. (I am no LabVIEW expert, sorry for this.)
