Simple example for capture and custom filename output?

PostThu Jan 04, 2018 8:26 pm

Hi,
I have a H.264PRO Recorder, using windows 10.
I'm currently reading trough the SDK-Decklink manual, learning about the API.

However, are there any simple examples available showing how to

a) get a device instance in code
b) tell it to start capture into a custom named file
c) stop the capture

That's all I need the code todo in fact.

I'm able to use the device with Media Express and it works pretty well.
Regards,

Just found examples in the SDK-Decklink distribution.
However, none of the examples seem to be able to find the H.264 PRO Recorder device.

And reading an 'old' product manual from 2012:

saying:

Third party software applications cannot currently be used to record video with the H.264 Pro Recorder
hardware.


Question: Is it possible to use the SDK-DeckLink API to control the H.264ProRecorder for capturing to a file?

Thanks

I have been using this project https://github.com/baycom/MXPTiny without any problem for the H.264 Pro recorder and the old ATEM TVS.
It can capture to disk as well as providing network streaming.

Thanks Ian. I found this project too, on Github, and is currently using it for the creation of a command line client application. Works great with the H.264Pro recorder indeed.
