raspivid -e does not show encoded video

Sat Nov 16, 2013 4:57 am

When I use raspivid with the -e command it displays the raw sensor preview and not the video after encoding. I would like to see the encoded video to get an idea of the quality and artifacts in it. Am I doing something wrong or is the -e option broken?

The -e option only works, if you create some output.
If you do not want to have output you can try something like:
"raspivid -e -b 1000 -o - > /dev/null"
