Artifacts and memory leaking after GetStillImage

Sep 19, 2007 at 4:48 PM
Hi,

I am creating an application that uses the webcam to get still images on a WinCE 5 platform.
The stream works stable and smooth until I use GetStillImage from CameraCode.

After I use GetStillImage the stream becomes sort of unstable and jumpy resulting in odd artifacts in the stream display.
If I stop and restart the stream it becomes stable again.

I use driver 008 and Logitech QuickCam pro 5000.

I also tested it with the CamTest2 sample application and got the same result.

Any idea what can it be?

Thanks

After doing some more tests it also appears that using the GetStillImage to save a jpg file causes memory leakage.

This also happens in the CamTest2 example !

I will keep on checking it.
