Yawcam #2 becomes unresponsive

Postby blubudda » Sat Feb 06, 2016 6:16 pm

I am running Windows XP, all "updated". I updated to the latest Yawcam version 5 about a week ago, which is accessing a Logitech HD Webcam C615.
Now it seems to become unresponsive after capturing timelapse images for one night.

I have the first instance capturing images during the day, and the second capturing at night. I use the scheduler to automatically start and stop, and I manually change the file path for each day's files.

Immediately after installing the latest Yawcam, I noticed that the second instance, would work for the night, but then during the day (sometimes in the morning, sometimes I don't try until the evening) it becomes unresponsive and does not capture or respond to menu clicks. I can't open a Preview window, I can;t access any menus, it just does not respond.

I have had to kill the application in Task Manager every day, then start Yawcam again, which asks if I'm starting a second instance, I say yes, and it comes back just fine. If I restart it in the morning (so it's basically just waiting until evening to start capturing images), it will be unresponsive by evening. Again, Task Manager to kill, start another instance, works fine. Through all of this, I think the first instance is running O.K.

I have been using yawcam for years, and it is always a bit buggy, always have times when I need to restart, but not every day. Sometimes it could run (with these same cameras on this same machine) for weeks with no issues. But now, that second instance is having daily major failures.

Strange! I have not experienced this on any of my test machines.
You could try to enable Java rendering instead of DirectX rendering and see if that helps.

To do this you will have to use the "text file hack": javarendering.txt
Read more about that here: viewtopic.php?f=4&t=1264

Please note that you will have to create one javarendering.txt for every instance of Yawcam.
Create the first here:
C:\Documents and Settings\username\.yawcam\javarendering.txt
and the second here:
C:\Documents and Settings\username\.yawcam\2\javarendering.txt

I am having the same problem running on Windows 10 home with java 1.8.0.73.
For me, the new version can go two or three days before it freezes. Right before it freezes, it manages to upload one last image to the FTP site in which the bottom half is a picture but the top half of the image is all black. It always seems to freeze sometime between midnight at 8am.
Although I can't interact with the YawCam windows after this happens, I can still click on Exit from the system tray. This brings up the "closing" window, but doesn't actually close the program.

I will try the javarendering change this weekend to see if it solves the problem.

Could perhaps be a memory problem, but it's hard to say...
You could run instance #2 in debug mode and see if that gives us any clues.

More info on how to run in debug mode here:

I just realized that this thread is about a second instance, so I might be having a different problem because I am having the same symptoms with the first and only instance. Let me know if I should create a new thread instead of posting to this thread. After changing the javarendering setting, I am still having the problem. The (shortened) debug log is:

Re: Yawcam #2 becomes unresponsive

There are no sign of any memory problems in glires' log file.

But we can see that the camera stops delivering images at the end of the log.
This should normally be handled by Yawcam.

Yawcam has two mechanisms that tries to recover when the camera won't deliver images.
One that waits for a new image after the cameras has been paused.
And one that periodically checks that the images produced by the camera hasn't frozen.

It's possible that the two mechanisms are affecting each other in a bad way in this case.

There are two things I would like to try to better understand what happens.
1)
Disable the device monitor in Yawcam and see what kind of behavior you get. You can disable the device monitor in the settings: "Settings -> Edit settings... -> Startup -> Enable device error monitor".
Please run in debug mode so that we can check the logs if needed.

2)
Enable the device monitor again. This time, make sure that the preview window is open in Yawcam all the time when you are running. If you want you can minimize the preview window, but don't close it. This should force the camera to be active all the time so it won't be paused between the ftp uploads. And again, please run in debug mode so that we can check the logs if needed.
