Save Webcam Image without using Clipboard

02-14-2005, 01:36 PM
I am going completely crazy with this: is there any way possible to save the current webcam image to a picturebox (so I can then do savepicture picture1.picture, "c:\cam.bmp") without having to use the clipboard?!

Well you can use AviCap.dll. Then you have some options to save:
Avi file, Bitmap (oneshot) or you can handle the video-buffer as an array of pixels. Its not easy. You must understand API's and callbacks. If you do a google with "avicap.dll vb" you will find some hits (some very good Germans, VB=VB). I have some code for video-buffers but is complex and not well explained. If you understand the examples there and you want to go on let me know.

is there a way to encrypt a picturebox (or something) very fast to text and send it with winsock to create a streaming connection?
