    Hello Christopher, 

    What operating system and what USB3 controller do you use? 

    Best regards,

    Manuel

    I'm running Ubuntu 22.04 in WSL on my Windows 11 machine
    I also have the BFS-U3-32S4M-C USB 3.1 Blackfly® S, Monochrome Camera as the USB3 controller

    Does it work fine when you install Spinnaker on Windows 11 directly? 

    Could you please try to increase the USBFS buffer size on Ubuntu? https://www.flir.com/support-center/iis/machine-vision/application-note/understanding-usbfs-on-linux/

    Using the SpinView GUI in Windows 11 I'm able to switch between all the pixel formats just fine

    But when I increased the USBFS buffer from it's original 1000 MB --> 5000 MB --> 100000 MB I'm still seeing the same error.

    I'm wondering if it is some limitation of WSL then. Can you start the camera when you configure a small image size and small number of buffers (StreamBufferCountManual) in SpinView? You have to set StreamBufferCountMode to manual be able to configure the number of buffers.

    I did some short testing with a laptop that has Ubuntu installed on it and a Raspberry PI

    Both devices were able to 'cycle' through the supported pixel formats when using the SpinView GUI and I'm heavily assuming that changing the pixel formats in any of the provided C++ examples would work

    I can confirm those findings with you later this week

    Update : I was able to cycle through the pixel formats with the SpinView GUI just fine with my laptop that's running Ubuntu 22.04 on it just fine

    Kinda bummed that I can't use WSL to write the C++ code I originally intended, but it is what it is
