View Full Version : Recording from DFK 41BF02 AVI video with codec YUY2@7.5fps

June 7, 2010, 23:41:54
I am trying to record from one DFK 41BF02 an AVI Video file at YUY2@7.5fps.
The following function works with some Codecs but if I use "YUY2" the system stop.
I also try to use a word as Codec like "airplane" and I have the same error as I used "YUY2". It looks like the software does not find the CODEC.

Maybe there is an error of the YUY2 installation but using the "IC Capture 2.1 TIS" works fine to record AVI-YUY2@7.5fps.

Any help I will appreciate.

Best Regards,


private void btnStartCapture_Click(object sender, System.EventArgs e) {
icImagingControl1.AviStartCapture("video.avi", "MJPEG Compressor");
btnStartCapture.Enabled = false;
btnStopCapture.Enabled = true;

Please make sure, the video format of the camera is "YUY2" and nothing else, because there is not conversion from any video format to "YUY2" available. I think this is your problem.

Dear Stefan :

I can choose only "BY8", "Y800" or "UYVY". I choose "UYVY" and in the software I select to record with the codec "UYVY". If I use MJPEG or other compress codec I do not have problems.

The error is :

TIS.Imaging.ICException was unhandled

Message="Internal error"

Dear Cesar,

Please try the same with IC Capture.

I am not sure, how do you set the UYVY codec. However, it must be done as MEDIASUBTYPE_UYVY, not as string "UYVY" to the sink creation function

icImagingControl1.AviStartCapture("video.avi", MEDIASUBTYPE_UYVY );

Dear Stefan:

Thank you very much for your help.
IC Capture 2.1 TIS" always works fine to record AVI-UYVY@7.5fps from 4 cameras at same time.
You are correct, MEDIASUBTYPE_UYVY has to be the solution.
I am new in .NET programming and I will appreciate any tip to declare in the.cs file the MEDIASUBTYPE_UYVY.
I know it has to be something like
public static Guid MEDIASUBTYPE_UYVY = new Guid(0x59565955, 0x0000, 0x0010, 0x80, 0x00, 0x00, 0xaa, 0x00, 0x38, 0x9b, 0x71);

Best Regards,

the GUID is already defined in IC Imaging Control. You can use it, without defining it on your own.
