I've been having an issue, which seems that some others have had as well, whereby on a certain laptop NDI 4.5 Scan Convertor will run for a few seconds and then die.
This is on a little older laptop with only Intel graphics chipset (EG, no NVidia secondary).
Please note that the older NDI Portable Scan Convertor runs just fine.
However, I want to take advantage of the internal webcam redirect and this situation is keeping that from happening. BTW, it isn't even if I attempt to set that webcam redirect up, I'll just launch Scan Convertor, which begins working, then in 10-15 seconds it disappears from the system tray and it's dead without doing anything.
I was looking for an earlier version of Scan Convertor, 4.0, to see if this happens. Can anyone direct me to an archive or such? Alternatively, if anyone has had any experience with resolving this, I'd appreciate it. I've looked through the Forum and hadn't seen anything.
FWIW, I think it was running OK up to recently. There may be some potential DLL conflicts? Anyone with experience with that would be helpful.
UPDATE 1: Though not solved, I've been able to replicate the issue and find an acceptable work-around. If other devices are configured to pull the scan convertor stream and they are running, the app will fail on startup. IF, however, there are NO other devices attempting to pull the stream when starting the app, then it will start normally and continue to run ... so it's a matter to configure the pull of the stream AFTER starting the app. If anyone has had similar problem it would likely be good to put this into support as a possible bug?
UPDATE 2: Well, thought I'd gotten a good work-around but the procedure above only holds the connection for a couple of minutes. Strange. Anyone?
UPDATE 3: I installed VMix Desktop Capture and that's working OK. I'll end up using that for the moment until these issues are resolved.
