Camera Not Working(Transcoding Media Sample) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    In the transcoding sample application, when we are selecting the  option Open file and selecting the Camera for  transcoding, the Camera is Displaying as "the camera isn't working"(Using External Camera).

    I have enabled all the Permissions, it is able to Use the Camera UI Sample , but in the Transcoding Media Sample it is not Working.

    In my Laptop when I tried to run this Application(Transcoding Media Application) it is Working fine and able to take the video and transcode it properly.

    Thanks in Advance.

  • Perhaps your camera is not supported.  What is the make and model of your camera and have you installed/checked for Windows 8 drivers for it?  See if other apps can use your camera and if the Camera Capture UI sample works.
