EKOS Video Streaming // buffer size

Hello,

I installed Stellarmate 1.61 on a RPI 4 4GB. I really like it! However I have an issue with video-streaming in EKOS. I get following error:

[ERROR] Invalid source buffer size, skipping frame

I already adjusted buffer-size and a few other parameters but I cannot solve it. Iam using an Altair Hypercam 183c fan-cooled (with the AA183CPRO Driver)
Any help would be very appreciated. In general it would be super helpful to see some best-practise settings for this cam.

Many thanks

You really don't need to adjust any settings. If you capture a "regular" image before starting the stream, does it help with the error?

 Hi Jasem,thanks a lot for the quick reply. To ensure that there is no issue with the settings I already implemented I installed Stellarmate 1.61 from scratch again (without updating).As proposed I took a regular capture first and after I started video-streaming. The issue is still there. Please have a look at the screenshots attached.

Best,

Hi Jasem,

Binning was indeed the issue. I changed it to 1x1 and it works.
Thanks so much!!
