Description

The N96 uses hardware codecs which require additional settings compared to other S60 devices. When the Archived:MDFDevVideo Record Symbian API is run on the Nokia N96, the application fails with the KErrNotReady (-18) error while calling CMMFDevVideoRecord::WritePictureL(), or with KErrNotSupported (-5) if the camera has been set as the video source with CMMFDevVideoRecord::SetSourceCameraL().

How to reproduce

The Archived:MDFDevVideo Record Symbian API can be used to reproduce the problem on the Nokia N96.

Solution

To ensure that MDF DevVideo encoders work on the Nokia N96, call the CMMFDevVideoRecord::SetRateControlOptions() function in MMMFDevVideoRecordObserver::MdvroInitializeComplete before calling CMMFDevVideoRecord::Start().

 void CDevvideoExAppUi::MdvroInitializeComplete( TInt aError )
{
if ( aError != KErrNone )
{
// TODO: Handle errors
return;
}
 
// Set rate control options
TRateControlOptions rateCtrl;
rateCtrl.iControl = EBrControlNone;
rateCtrl.iPictureQuality = 0;
rateCtrl.iBitrate = iBitRate;
rateCtrl.iPictureRate = iFrameRate;
rateCtrl.iQualityTemporalTradeoff = 0;
rateCtrl.iLatencyQualityTradeoff = 0;
iDvr->SetRateControlOptions( 0, rateCtrl );
 
// Start encoding
iDvr->Start();
 
// Write first input picture
iPicNum = 0;
WritePic();
}
