RaceCapture app 2.9.0 with improved video support, plus a better Raspberry Pi installer

Video improvements

Now, when you import data and video into analysis we’ll massage your video (technically called “transcode”) to ensure playback is smooth and optimized. This is a step towards full and robust Video + data integration, where video is precisely timed with your data logs.

Video Gauge in the dashboard

We’ve enabled the video gauge on the dashboard, and it’s available for Linux builds only. If you can figure out some interesting uses for this, bonus points for you! Much more on that in a future post and livestream.

Enhanced Raspberry Pi installer

Coinciding with this release is a vastly improved Raspberry Pi installation process, which includes a convenient setup wizard that performs nearly all installation steps. See the new installation instructions here

There’s a catch: This requires Raspberry Pi, Bullseye 64 bit – so you will need to upgrade your base OS. Trust us, it will be worth it!

Windows – now requires 64 bit capable system (Windows 10+)

Another change you shouldn’t notice is that RaceCapture 2.9.0 now requires Windows 10 systems that can run 64 bit applications. By and large, you should be fine, and this should be transparent to you, as Windows 10 has been out since 2015. Yes, it’s been that long!

Available on all platforms. Seriously.

The RaceCapture app run basically everywhere. Download links:

Android: Download from Google Play
iOS: Download from the iTunes App Store
Amazon Fire: Download from the Amazon app store
Windows: Download Direct
OSX: Download Direct
Linux: Download Direct
Raspberry Pi: Download Direct
