    Well, it looks the device control is failing on Windows 7. It's an invalid parameter error so it's not a security issue. I thought Windows 7 handled hibernation better as far as USB is concerned? Either way, I'll find a fix for it. Have you tried switching USB ports or changing power settings for the hub they are on?

    When no GPS info is displayed, look at the GPS filter parameters and see if that shows "3D fix" as well. That would show if there's a connection problem with the filter. If that's ok try using the custom text line. That will show even without XPort unless something is wrong.

    Well, I tested the latest one, it does started minimized, so kudos! But as before, no luck recording. I tried the custom text, it worked, but in the garage I don't have GPS signal, that can only be tested while driving. I'll get back with more info on that. But I remember having checked: after a restart, no gps data/fix, gps acquires fix, xport reports it fine, but the cam didn't display it.

    I also double booted into my XPSP3 and tested the latest version, still no luck. Back to windows 7, I'm about to test CF3, so I went back in time to an image right after I installed Win7, then I'll try the latest minicam again. But the pattern has been: if a version works, it works on win7/xp, whatever. When it doesn't start well, nothing can fix it.

    I reinstalled minicam, ensured that full write permissions are availble to 'Everyone' on the video folder, and reinstalled all the codecs.

    Even now when I click record it creates a video file but does not write to it. (Divx) I told FFDShow to output the encoding data it appears to write the first 2 frames then stops. Any ideas?

    Well, I finally got a real debug build accomplished. It was being stubborn. So, 2 bugs fixed. One was a buffer overrun from camera properties, so this might just fix it for you. Download it yet again.

    No idea yet. Ok, if it's writing 2 frames I'd supsect it has the right permissions. I remember XviD doing something like that. It was the one that pops up the statistics. The time it takes to do that caused it to freeze long enough to error out. It's the initial delays that usually cause somthing like that.

    OMG, it worked! Thanks!

    I was going to ask you to add an always on "R" or a recording dot indicating the file is working alright (without having to double tap). But on second thought, better not to touch it! I tested hibernating, archiving, etc. all worked fine with 960x720 @ 15fps FFDShow-Xvid and stereo 44.1Khz PCM.

    I'm going to test my gps issues soon (about having 3d fix long after Minicam is already recording and Minicam not displaying data on the screen), and I'll get back to you later.


    You rock!

    Good to hear! I like it when things work as they should. Stereo will just take extra space though.

    Maybe we can get the GPS data thing working next. That's another thing I haven't been able to reproduce yet.

    High resolutions

    Thanks for this nice pice of software, MiniCam/GPS Filter works on my Windows 7 PC without problems (after some video/audio codec issues I had to test through).

    Does anybody now a webcam which supports higher resolution (1280x768) with 25/30 fps?
    I'm currently using the Logitech QuickCam Pro 9000, which unfortunately supports 30 fps only up to 640x480.

    which video codec did you use for encoding? I can only seem to get raw working... the rest give me 0 byte files. (currently reading through the loooooooooong thread)
