Talk:Video Capture

Before it gets away from me, I decided to put in some status.

I worked on getting the Python based VidCap stuff compiling and found the 'hello world' project Stephen talked about. At least I think it was the same.

Unfortunately, porting that logic to C# wasn't trivial. Without Stephen's help and understanding I wasn't sure if I was even working with the correct logic steps, I bailed to more familiar territory.

I think Stephen can pursue the Python stuff. But, just looking at all of the pieces required it seems like it will end up being a very large executable.

The Friday afternoon I spent working with AmCap, the MS Sample VidCap executable/source. I was able to compile it and run it compiled. At the same time Micheal found a third-party 'free' utility that he was able to get everything he needed. He did however need to run a conversion/compression after the file was created.

He wrote an email trying to communicate with the author about rigths/source code possibilities. Stay tuned. If successful, that may be the best solution.

So, Tyler and I put the AmCap code into SVN as a starting place.

I think I'll put the compression piece to the end of the capture logic.

Then I'll mess with the UI.

DirectShowNet

I found this active project written for .Net and updated Windows 7 libs. It wraps the DirectShow libraries with .Net.

From their website... http://directshownet.sourceforge.net/about.html

DirectShowNET Library The purpose of this library is to allow access to Microsoft's DirectShow functionality from within .NET applications. This library supports both Visual Basic .NET and C#, and theoretically, should work with any .NET language.

There are sample applications as well.
