Format switch on decklink consumer in 2.2.0


#1

Hi,
Somewhere between 2.1.0 beta2 and 2.2.0 stable on Windows the FORMAT switch has stopped working for the Decklink consumer. Has there been a change to the syntax between these builds, or is this a bug?

On 2.1.0b2

PLAY 1-10 DECKLINK DEVICE 1 FORMAT 1080i5000

This is a known limitation in 2.2. It is already resolved in master, so you will need to use a dev build (http://builds.casparcg.com/) until 2.3 is released

Thanks for that. The format issue is resolved in the master tree, but there appears to have been a regression on #1197 since 2.2.0, as videos are not looping in the latest build.

I’ve tried a couple of intermediate master builds, and have found 11f3a5836 (2019-02-21) allows me to both choose the format, and loop a video, so I am going to work with that one for now.

Thanks,
