there is no point of doing test by recording 100- 200 frames. i dont have any pink frames recording only 200 frames on my 550D. problems starts when i record 1000 plus frames. i test by recording 1000 - 3000 frames

what impresses me even more is the fact that you get more frames with MLV in some tests...
mlv_rec used to be slower than raw_rec...

Well, that's all I get before it stops automatically.  >:( I WISH I could get 1000 frames!  MLV_REC works well.  I guess my 60D is limited by its hardware.

lower the resolution and u should be able to shoot continous... u may not like low resolution for your project but u need to record for few mins to test. its difficult to say no more pink frames by recording 5/6 secs.

Although I may be able to shoot continuous in low res, it doesn't serve my purpose as I would not shoot that way in real case scenarios.  I want to shoot at the resolutions I need to work with, so if I shot at 640x480 and could shoot for 30 minutes it still isn't going to be anything I would ever use.  I am interested in what I can shoot and use in my projects and right now what I get works without pink frames.  However I'll give it a go in low res and see what happens.

Another thing to note is that certain resolutions might trigger pink frames more than others.

I am wondering if it is just coincidence that you are not getting pink frames? I don't remember any pink frame fix added for 550D? Or did I miss a commit? Just curious because I have a 550D as well, just have not used it much since I got the 700D?

g3gg0 did some changes on the EDMAC side for mlv_rec. If the improvement is only on mlv_rec and not on raw_rec, it's from his changes.

Back then I ran my tests without recording, but with grayscale preview on (this way I was getting a lot of pink frames).

May be worth checking both methods combined (5D3/60D users, please report, because you have both fixes applied).

MLV_rec i use.  I stop making tests with raw_rec.  But need to test more, only recorded a few clips but with no pink/corrupted frames. 

What i found is wend you preview the files in camera (hit the play button) and then return to Lv the black box for 2.25:1 is out of the place, more down of the screen, need to turn off and on to correct this bug.

Start by finding the nightly build that caused issues again.

oh i am sorry but i havent found any discussions on this. i like cdng and not dng. i think my last option is to sell my camera. i just sold my 550D last week after the pink frame fix and got this 650D thinking it wil be the same and it can record 720P but now i am little bit frustrated with pink dots on this camera. now its time to sell this camera. thank q anyway
