Computer Specific Issues

Lenovo ThinkPad T Series

Detected in the beta test phase 05./06.2020 on Jonas' machine: Applications which access the camera via Media Foundation such as DVTICamControl can't keep the camera active after connect. Windows puts them into USB U3 state after a short moment. Applications which use DirectShow work fine.

This also happens with the internal camera.

The fix is to add a registry key: Create DWORD EnableFrameServerMode with value 0 in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\\SOFTWARE\\Microsoft\\Windows Media Foundation\\Platform .

For details see this forum post: https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-T400-T500-and-newer-T-series-Laptops/Integrated-Camera-displays-the-first-frame-captured-but-then-freezes/m-p/4064970?page=2

Many thanks to Jonas for analyzing this issue.
