Won't save motion AVI when it reports <memory corruption>

I reckon this programme will do exactly what I need, if I can just get it to reliably save 10 second AVI recordings of detected motion (It sends out e-mails OK). I keep getting this slightly silly message about other things having corrupted memory, causing an illegal memory R/W by CamUniversal.

I really need to get this to work. Is there a known work-around for avoiding this, and allowing M-JPEG streaming to run to file? Are there some combinations of "settings" which are safer than others, perhaps?

I am streaming in from an ethernet source, 640x480x24 at around 400 MB/S (according to my network monitor); the IP camera says it exports M-JPEG at 15 frames per second. I am aiming to save to a SATA-RAID-0 (which will take 1080p easily in H.264) which should be fast enough, I think.

Any comments or helpful tips most welcome. :P

do you get this memory problem each time you record a video?

Have you tried to use different video codecs (or without a codec for testing)?
Do you get the problem only if you record at motion detection or also if you record manually?

There is no possibility to save the mjpeg stream direct into a file.
The video recording in the mjpeg stream mode and in the still pictures mode is done in the same way.

I find that if I strip CamUniversal down to the minimum (1 camera, 1 job (Motion Detection, only write videoclip)) that it is working OK.

I think that this is the type of software which could benefit you greatly if it also writes an err-log.txt file, so you can get the information which you need to resolve coding problems. You may care to consider that possibility.
