Kinect recordings with a compressed color format RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all,

    Is the Kinect V2 able to record using a compressed color format to save storage size? Assuming, of course, there is a sufficiently powerful machine for Kinect capture and compression. The following old post say no.

    However, in the recently released code for KSutil (, you can see the following comment and function call. The CreateStreamCollection function switches between uncompressed and compressed color.
    //K4W supports uncompressed and compressed color, so if we get an error, try recording the other type
                    streamCollection = StreamSupport.CreateStreamCollection(streamDataTypeIds, true);
                    recording = client.CreateRecording(filePath, streamCollection);

    If you force this compressed  color stream, the error is still "Value does not fall within the expected range"
    Is compressed color recording supported? or is it going to be supported in the near future?

    Thanks in advance.

    Best regards,
