Exclusive Mode Kinect Audio Capture RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello everybody,

    I would like to work with the Kinect microphone array in exclusive mode using the WASAPI.

    Have anyone tried to use the Kinect this way?

    My problem is that I can not find out a compatible WAVEFORMATEX specification to initialize the Audio Client.

    Thanks for your help!

  • You can work with the Microphone array in exclusive mode, but the Kinect SDK is not built to do so. :) When you access the microphone array through the Kinect SDK, we open the microphone in shared mode.  If you wish to access it in exclusive mode, you must open it directly.  This is specified in the open API, not in a WaveFormatEx.
