Setting BM H264 encoder to capture segmented mp4 files

PostSun Feb 02, 2020 5:34 pm

Greetings,
We are trying to setup the BM H264 encoder to capture video files in 10 min segments (using Media Express maybe?), any guidance as to how to do this?
Is there a simple way to do this or do we need to have a custom code developed?
Thanks!

Hi Sam,

If you are referring to the H.264 Pro Recorder, no you can't use Media Express to capture in segments.

You can use the IBMDStreamingAPI to capture H.264 packets and then implement record timer, but you would need to find mechanism to save packets into mp4/mov container (eg Media Foundation or AVFoundation)

The alternative would be to create macro to record button presses and add delay, the problem here is that you will miss packets between captures. I am unable to assist you finding or using such a tool.

Cameron
