Potential fix for laggy RGB/depth image/freezing RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Hi all,

    This might be covered elsewhere but I couldn't find it. If your Kinect SDK project is suffering from lag, pauses or freeze-ups, make sure the Kinect is plugged directly into a USB port in your computer. If you plug it into a USB hub or extension cable you may experience odd behaviour. Furthermore, you should try different USB ports if you're still having problems. The ports may have different power/bandwidth settings, and the Kinect needs as much of both as it can get.

  • Thanks for that, I don't think its been covered. On the subject of USB, do you think a USB port could be too slow for MS drivers but ok for other Kinect drivers?
