    Btw, if you want to encode anything higher than 1080p60 using the Videocore VI, you'll need to use an external library like ffmpeg. There is a good tutorial for ffmpeg too - https://github.com/leandromoreira/ffmpeg-libav-tutorial . This should teach you how to encode the raw video stream you get from the camera into a codec of your choice.
