    Looks like we've got 2 that can't use a codec now. Have you tried unregistering the GPS filter? I would hope that's not the problem, but anything is possible. I also uploaded a new version of MiniCam with a "Low CPU" option. It enables (or disables) my optimizations which could also be the culprit.

    I have not tried that yet.
    I just now got it working with Microsoft video 1... sound and video record but i realy want xvid.

    I'll try what you mentioned.
    Was the upload within the last two days? I just downloaded it yesterday.


    where's the low cpu option? found it..
    Low CPU option does not seem to "stick". If i check it and close out, the next time i go back to check configuration, its not checked.
    Same happens even if running as admin.
    Same hapens even if running compatibility for xp sp3, and with admin.

    ---------edit-------

    Unregistering the GPS filter i can now use XVID to record without the 0 byte file problem. But i really want xvid with gps info... hmm.


    ---------edit--------
    I reregistered the filter to try again with xvid, and it seems to crash the app when i hit record.

    Maybe this helps: ?

    I'm using the ffdshow encoder and tried different codecs (which all worked), to name: Xvid, Mpeg2/4, H.264

    Unfortunately I cannot choose ffdshow encoder form the audio encoding option in MiniCam -> This would be nice to have some more control over the audio codecs used

    MiniCam only works for me under Windows 7 32 bit.

    Sorry, I left a line of code out to select that checkbox. Download again.

    It looks like XviD could have problems with the GPS filter. But like tacklemoe says, ffdshow's xvid works.


    @tacklemoe, ffdshow doesn't have an audio encoder. That would be awesome if it did though!

    Ditto. Only Uncompressed works for me on Win7 Ultimate x86. Tried everything under the sun with ffdshow but no dice.

    Ok, special MiniCam Debug version for anyone who wants it fixed. Run DbgView.exe before starting it. The messages may be cryptic, but I'll know what they mean.

    Latest version working fine for me here, with or without the low cpu option (win7 32bits, DG45FC). I've just upgraded BIOS too, some changes to the integrated graphic.

    I can't test it much with GPS, simply because it does not wake up from hibernation. After resuming, I even tried removing GPSgate from autostart, to see if it was interfering. So when I launch GPS gate after resuming, it will not find it and crash sometimes.

    I installed one of the gadgets that measure CPU performance. At 920x760 it can get 65%-70% peak sometimes, every minute or so, than returns back to 30-40%. Is this normal? Running just the Minicam.

    So I guess I'm going to try a lower resolution, maybe 800x600. But then the aspect ratio changes. What does the lock aspect option does - specially when it's embeded? CF windows is definitely widescreen, and if I lock it it won't resize/embed?

    Also, it would be nice to have a button to turn on preview while recording. I'd like it to start minimized - and recording - but no previewing. When I launch CF Minicam window, however, I'd like it to show the preview THEN. So a command line switch to bypass the settings would be nice, like minicam.exe -preview on or whatever. That way you can save a lot of CPU %, right?

    Good. I'm glad the low CPU tweeks didn't break anything.

    The CPU usage varies quite a bit when capturing depending on the codec used. That's normal for MPEG/XviD/DivX encoding because it's generating I frames 15 seconds or so depending on how it's configured. Different types of frames take different amounts of CPU.

    The lock aspect makes the window 1:1 with the video when you resize it. That causes a resize, which interferes with embedding.

    I'll add a preview command line option in the next version. I will probably be just PREVIEW or NOPREVIEW. Yes, it does cut down on CPU use a lot with onboard video.

    Great app!

    Only probs I have is that It will work every 2 or 3 hiberantes/resumes but I then get an error saying, There are not enough system resoucres available...

    Please see attached screenshot. Any ideas?
