Inconsistency in using Capture code provided in SDK

PostWed Apr 04, 2018 5:36 am


I have a 'DeckLink 4K Extreme 6G SDI' device, and for this I am using 'BlackMagic_DeckLink_SDK_10.9.5' on my Ubuntu 16.04 machine.

My application requires capturing of 500 video frames from external source through DeckLink card using Capture example provided in DeckLink_SDK. Here the video source is transmitting at 720p59.94 .
The connection done is, HDMI-OUT of the video source is connected to HDMI-IN of the DeckLink card.
The command I am using to run the capture executable once I start transmitting the video from external source is:
./Capture -d 0 -m 14 -p 2 -n 500 -v video.raw

So according to this DeckLink card should capture 500 frames and should stop capturing further frames.
But what I see is the DeckLink card goes on capturing the frames and doesn't stop once it captures 500 frames.

Unable to get what the problem is, waiting for any help. TIA
