Playback without camera connected

A colleague recorded a SVO file for me. I’m trying to use the vanilla playback script for python: zed-examples/svo_playback.py at master · stereolabs/zed-examples · GitHub

it stalls on

status = cam.open(init)

Unfortunately, I’m not getting any error message. The process is using 100% of the CPU.

Is this supposed to work if there is no camera connected? What are the next steps to debug why this isn’t working?

Hi @wmpauli
you can use the SVO files without connecting a camera.
Maybe that the SVO that you are trying to use is broken, you can try to use the ZED_SVO_Editor tool to repair it:
ZED_SVO_Editor -repair input.svo
