viewfinder callback stops getting called

[ Edited ]



I am sending images to a socket from frames which are passed to me in a viewfinder callback.


The callback just stops receiving events after about 5 seconds - no more is this callback called.


What could cause this problem?


I am doing quite a lot of work in this callback, I have tried passing the camera_buffer_t to a slot but when i try that the camera_buffer_t doesn't contain any data so for the moment I am still just trying to send the data in the callback itself.


I have tried checking the time since last sent data so it's not sending more than 1 image every 2 seconds but this doesn't help.


Any ideas anybody?

Re: viewfinder callback stops getting called

this was my fault - I got some sleep and found my problem - I was stopping viewfinder myself!
