How to create / record an AVI File (movie/video) in Linux?

Since the current pylon Camera Software Suite for Linux does not support any native AVI class like the pylon Camera Software Suite for Windows, we'd like to offer an alternative solution showing how easy an AVI file can be created by using 3rd party open source libraries.

There are plenty of open source solutions that can be found on the internet, e.g.

  • OpenCV
  • VLC Lib
  • Gstreamer
  • MakeAVI
  • Qtffmpegwrapper
  • Ffmpeg

Please contact the Basler Support for a pylon API sample that demonstrates writing of AVI files by using OpenCV (mention Solution #860).
