Hello everyone.

We have decided to phase out the Mixed Reality Forums over the next few months in favor of other ways to connect with us.

The first way we want to connect with you is our mixed reality developer program, which you can sign up for at https://aka.ms/IWantMR.

The plan between now and the beginning of May is to clean up old, unanswered questions that are no longer relevant. The forums will remain open and usable.

On May 1st we will be locking the forums to new posts and replies. They will remain available for another three months for the purposes of searching them, and then they will be closed altogether on August 1st.

So, where does that leave our awesome community to ask questions? Well, there are a few places we want to engage with you. For technical questions, please use Stack Overflow, and tag your questions using either hololens or windows-mixed-reality. If you want to join in discussions, please do so in the HoloDevelopers Slack, which you can join by going to https://aka.ms/holodevelopers. And always feel free to hit us up on Twitter @MxdRealityDev.

Mixed Reality Capture Failing

edited November 2016 in Questions And Answers

I have used vuforia sdk for object detection in hololens app. When I am trying to use mixed reality capture via cortana command or from device portal, It is stopped automatically after vuforia sdk initialized. Is it expected beahviour and also is there any other way to capture video of hololens app which have used vuforia sdk


  • @chirag_icpl,
    It sounds like you are encountering the photo/video camera access limitation documented here.

    Depending on how the Vuforia SDK uses the cameras (note, I have no experience with Vuforia), you may have success creating a custom MRC recorder.


  • I'm having the same problem but only with taking pictures.
    Have you solved this problem alreay?

  • Anyone have any other work arounds? The whole spectator rig is too involved and does not record first person. Trying to use an external camera to record has been difficult to get the focus correct
