camera_set_videoencoder_parameter()

Configure video encoder parameters

Synopsis:

#include <camera/camera_encoder.h>
#define camera_set_videoencoder_parameter(handle,
                                args...)

Arguments:

handle
The handle returned by a call to the camera_open() function.
args
A series of comma-delimited parameter-value pairs.

Library:

libcamapi

Description:

Use this function to configure the video encoder before you start to encode or record video. The parameters that you can configure depend on the codec you selected using camera_set_video_property().

For the args argument, you can provide one or more parameter-value pairs using the parameter constants defined by the following enumerated types:

Parameters and values are delimited using commas, and so are multiple parameter-value pairs.

The parameter names that you choose depend on the video codec you want to use. For example, for H.264/AVC, use constants from the camera_h264avc_parameters_t enumerated type for the parameters along with the expected types for the values (e.g., int, double), as shown here:
 camera_set_videoencoder_parameter( camera_handle,
                   CAMERA_H264AVC_BITRATE, 1000000,
                   CAMERA_H264AVC_KEYFRAMEINTERVAL, 60,
                   CAMERA_H264AVC_RATECONTROL, CAMERA_H264AVC_RATECONTROL_CBR,
                   CAMERA_H264AVC_PROFILE, CAMERA_H264AVC_PROFILE_HIGH,
                   CAMERA_H264AVC_LEVEL, CAMERA_H264AVC_LEVEL_4 );
Then, to encode or record video, call the camera_start_video() or the camera_start_encode() function.

Returns:

CAMERA_EOK when the function successfully completes, otherwise another camera_error_t value that provides the reason that the call failed.
