Important Note:

This class is not recommended for determining pixel layout on Windows Phone 8. YCbCr data provided by the PhotoCameraGetPreviewBuffer methods follow the NV12 or NV21 format, depending on the version of phone. Apps running on Windows Phone 8 should process YCbCr data according to the NV12 standard rather than use this class to determine pixel the layout. Apps running on phones prior to Windows Phone 8 should process YCbCr data according to the NV21 standard.


If you use this API in your app, you must specify the following capabilities in the app manifest. Otherwise, your app might not work correctly or it might exit unexpectedly.


Windows Phone 8, Windows Phone OS 7.1
