Samples in DeckLink SDK not working

PostFri Feb 23, 2018 1:27 pm

Dear all,
I am using a Linux machine and I downloaded the DeckLink SDK. In order to understand if everything is going properly, I connected my Blackmagic camera to the DeckLink and started Media Express. The camera output is visible in the application window: all fine.
Then, I downloaded the DeckLink SDK and I found that there are pre-compiled samples. I tried to use the Capture sample, but the console says that there is "No input".

$ ./Capture -d 0 -m 2 -v video.raw

What am I doing wrong?

Hi Daniele,

Do you have a device that has auto-detect mode? If so can you try with -m -1 as option.

Otherwise, can you please provide the following:
  • Linux distribution + version
  • Desktop Video version
  • DeckLink card
  • Video + pixel format you are capturing from camera
