Video input

From SpinetiX Support Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search

This page is about the video-input feature of the HMP400, HMP400W, and third-party players. See also Video decoding and Video output pages.


Starting with the DSOS 4.7.1, the HMP400, HMP400W, and third-party players support the playback of content generated by one or more audio/video capture devices connected through USB. The DSOS 4.7.2 further improved the compatibility of USB video capture devices and extended the HDMI capture to support RAW mode.

To display the content captured by the USB video input device, simply add a video-in layer into your project.

Note Notes:

Known issues

  • The input from some cameras, such as Logitech ConferenceCam Connect and Logitech C930e, might not work correctly when using the MJPEG format. The workaround is to switch to YUYV 640x360 30 fps raw capture or to use webpage streaming (WebRTC).
  • The video-in capture playback might stop after a few hours on some devices, like ATEN CamLive Uc3020 and Elgato Cam Link 4K, when connected to the USB port dedicated for Display Port video output. In such cases, it's recommended to connect the source to another USB port, like the one for analog audio output.
