    Sorry, I didn't quite understand how to run multiple cameras, can you explain it a bit more simple?

    thanks

    @Go-carter: "multiple cameras" are not supported directly. Caputre! can only record from one camera at once.

    If you have two cameras (front and rear or so), you can copy the whole app to two different folders, say
    c:\program files\capture_front and
    c:\program files\capture_rear.

    configure the two config.inis to your cameras (in capture_front\config.ini set "VideoInputDevice=0" and in capture_rear\config.ini set "VideoInputDevice=1").

    Now you can make shortcuts to the two versions or add both in ces or cpos or whatever.

    Make sure that only one instance of Capture! runns at a time!


    I tried to access two cameras at once in another app, but the VIA C3 System was not fast enough for that...

    i just downloaded the capture program and tested it on my laptop befor i put it on my carputer and all works well exept 2 things...

    when imbedded in centrafuse the preview screen streches the preview... rather than keeping the preview square (the actuall recording is fine)

    the second thing is when i hit start i get this...

    i lose my preview and get a blue section insted.... is this suposed to happen?

    thanks for any help...

    Hi Tone!

    That's all correct, and not a bug but a feature!

    The "bluescreen" is the background image. You can put your own image there by replacing the "backround.bmp" with any bmp you want. (i have a picture of my car there)

    The reason for this is, that the VIA C3 System is not fast enough to record AND display a preview video.

    For the aspect ratio thing i could include a new config.ini value "WindowWidth" and "WindowHeight" so you can set your own window size if running in "WindowStateOnLoad = normal". Would that solve your Problem?

    My goal was to maximize the size of the preview window, regardless of the aspect ratio.

    Greetz! Chris

    Sure! The app is designed for a Via EPIA C3 System!

    Without the preview-window active while recording the C3 1GHz System is able to record at 320x240 with 30 fps and divx 5.2 compression and audio recording with mp3 compression while having CES playing mp3s and navigating with travelbook.

    It works very well, except that starting the app is a bit slow and after you pressed "start" the status display takes some seconds to show up, but recording is immediately.

    I'm not sure it has anything to do with the program, but after I record something, and open the video file just captured, the file doesn't play. It says playing, but nothing on the screen...any ideeas?

    @Cris: try deactivating the video codec and sound recording, change resolution and framerate, then try again. copy the video file to another computer and see if it plays there.

    what error message do you get when you doubleclick the recorded avi?

    Greetz, Chris

    Thanks Chris. I've tryed all that, except copying the file to another computer.
    I don't get any error massage, just media player doesn't play the file. It says it's playing but the bar isn't moving. Sorry about the off topic, as I don't think it's related to your software. Could be my lousy camera...I'll test it in the car when the new cam arrives.
