MediaCapture cutting off content


  • Doing some simple testing it seems that if you are capturing audio or video with the MediaCapture class to the respective wma/wmv format, when you cease capturing, a noticable portion of the content (last second or two) is cut-off/not captured at the end. Is this a known limitation or bug? The default format in the MediaCapture sample was m4a, which did not appear to have this problem.

  • I'm not seeing any notable difference switching between the two formats. This is the simple change I tested in the MediaCapture sample. Let me know if you changed anything else. If it is specific to a system, please add that as well.

    //recordProfile = MediaEncodingProfile::CreateMp4(Windows::Media::MediaProperties::VideoEncodingQuality::Auto);
    recordProfile = MediaEncodingProfile::CreateWmv(Windows::Media::MediaProperties::VideoEncodingQuality::Auto);
