Realsense infrared frame

Hi guys,
I’m new to the forum but not in using OF. I’m starting making some experiment using a Realsense camera and I would like to get the infrared frame from it.
I’m using the HiroMTB ofxRealsense2 addon.
after some struggling with the realsense 2.50 library itself, I was eventually able to enable color and depth streams and to make some post-processing on the acquired data.

But when it comes to enable the IR stream, my application is complaining of an execution error just after enabling the stream:

terminate called after throwing an instance of 'rs2::error'
  what():  Couldn't resolve requests

This is the my ofApp.h file:

#pragma once

#include "ofMain.h"
#include <librealsense2/rs.hpp>

class ofApp : public ofBaseApp{

		void setup();
		void update();
		void draw();

		rs2::pipeline pipe;
		rs2::config config;

This is the my ofApp.cpp file:

#include "ofApp.h"

void ofApp::setup() {

  ofLogNotice() << "abilito lo stream infrared";
  config.enable_stream(RS2_STREAM_INFRARED, 848, 480, RS2_FORMAT_Y8, 15);
  ofLogNotice() << "dopo abilitato lo stream infrared";

  pipe.start( config );

void ofApp::update(){
  auto framesSet  = pipe.wait_for_frames();
  auto infraredFrame = framesSet.get_infrared_frame(0);
  if( !infraredFrame ) { return; }

void ofApp::draw() {
  ofDrawBitmapStringHighlight("FPS: " + ofToString(ofGetFrameRate(), 0), ofGetWidth()-100, 20);

Anyone had experience the same error before?
How can I solve this issue?

I’ve found some working example inside the Perevalovds ofxRealSense addon but I suspect that an old version of the library is being used and, anyway, I can’t understand how, even if I follow similar configuration steps, it can’t get the infrared stream to work.

Thank you so much for your support

hi guys,
only a follow up regarding my issue: I was eventually able to solve.
It was a problem related to my drivers.

Here you can find the thread i used to solve.
Thank you

Hey glad you got this working and thanks for posting about the problem and also how to resolve it! Sometimes the problems people have with various addons are hard to diagnose, but people do search the forum threads when looking for help.
