Hi guys! I have a camera on my robot, and I was wondering if you can record with it. If so, how do I do it? Also I really like using the sound servo, but every time I pause it, it breaks and I have to restart Ez builder to get it to work again. Is that something you are working on, or is it my computer?
Upgrade to ARC Pro
ARC Early Access will give you immediate updates and new features needed to unleash your robot's potential!
Do you know where the videos are being stored? In the media folder - you can find that folder by looking in the Camera Config menu. It always defaults to your My Pictures\My Robot Pictures folder. But you can see that in the Camera Config.
I will take a look and see if there is a bug with the Pause for Sound servo and release a fix if there is.
With the camera though. The robot takes snap shots just fine, and it saves it where I told it too. However when I click record under video recording, an error comes up and says: AVI writer error: cannot open the video file. It does this when I click both start and stop under video recording.
Use the attach file button to upload your project to your forum response.
Ok now here it is.
In the meantime, i can suggest you can perform the following...
1) uninstall ARC
2) reboot the PC
3) download and re-install ARC
see if that process helps. It's really difficult to identify localized issues like this. But we'll figure it out
I recorded a few videos using your project of my goofy face looking around at the screen lol
You may not have MPEG4 codecs installed on your PC. The default compression is WMV2, which i recommend you use. WMV2 is built into windows as well, which is why it's ARCs default value.
i'll see what i can add for more debug information regarding the error. It's a mystery as well.
