I have a form that I want to add video from my webcam. How do I go about adding the ActiveX control into the form (what ActiveX control do I need, ezVIDC60.oxc?).
I just want keep it very simple, to only display video automatically.
If possible send or tell me the source code that will enable me to do that.
You must be very busy, but I am in need of great help, anything you can do to help me will be of great.
Actually the .savedib method you discussed above is too slow for real
time image processing.
to fetch a single picture it takes nearly 1 second this amounts to 1
frame/s which is too slow for my project.
please suggest a way to process images at atleast 5 fps
I have used ezVidCap control on my application and found it very helpful. The only problem i get is when I capture movie it gives me a message box stating the location where the video file is. Is there a way I can get rid of the message box and start recording.
Set the MakeUserConfirmCapture property to False to disable this
message box and record straight away.
I have built an app that captures AVIs and takes snapshots and saves as
JPG. However, the instant that the window is minimized or loses focus, the ActiveX control stops refreshing, and therefore my snapshots are always the same.
The video preview does not update when none of the ezVidCap control
is displayed on the
screen, which is causing your problem. Unfortunately, there are no
properties or methods to change this behaviour. One way around it
is to make sure the Form is displayed just before the picture is
captured and then hide the Form again if desired. Put two Timers
on the Form as well as the ezVidCap control and try this code:
Private Sub Form_Load()
Timer1.Interval = 5000
Private Sub Timer1_Timer()
If WindowState = vbMinimized Then
WindowState = vbNormal
Delay 1 'To allow enough time for the Form to be displayed
WindowState = vbMinimized
Sub Delay(t As
Timer2.Interval = t * 1000
Timer2.Enabled = True
Do While Timer2.Enabled
Private Sub Timer2_Timer()
Timer2.Enabled = False
I have used ezvidcap very succesfully with a variety of video cature devices. Recently i tried to make it work with a d-link dub-t200 tv tuner USB 2.0 but it is not recognized as a video capture device by de ezvidcap control, although it works with other video applications.
What can i do to fix this problem?

how to set compression options programatically for video being captured?
how to record live videos with use of two buttons recursively?
Can I use this control to get the video and send it thru lan in real time without show a local window?
I can write all the stuff but I haven't figure out yet how to capture frames (no pics or video) from this control. That would be very useful for a security system. Thanks!
You can find out how to capture video and still images on this page.
We are starting a project at my lab where we need to incorporate a still image captured by a webcam into a vb screen.
So I need the program to initiate the picture and project it after it is taken at a certain spot on the form.
The programmer is gone for a semester, and I've never used VB before, but my boss doesn't care how to do it as long as it gets done.
If you can, please help!
Put an Image, a Command Button and an ezVidCap control onto the Form
and try this code:
Private Sub Command1_Click()
Image1.Picture = LoadPicture("C:\Pic.dib")
The image from the ezVidCap control will appear in the Image control.
I have a question , When any user fill my application form i want to provide a webcam control on form so that he can capture his live image while filling up the form and upload it then only or later .My problem is to create webcam control on form. If u have solution to my problem then please mail me the code,system requirement,details to implement it as soon as possible . I will be very thankful to u .
Have you tried the ezVidCap control? I think it is what you are
hi martin !
i have sent 3 or 4 mail for you but ,i dont have recieved any reply yet.
i want to do an image processing project, that have to use ezcamc60. i need to have still pictures from ezvidc60, and then, send this still pictures, to a picturebox for processing. how can i do it?
maybe use of saveDIB method can be useful, but i dont know,how i perform it?
thanks a lot for ur time.
You can capture a picture using ezVidCap and then load it into a
PictureBox with this code:
i have sent you two time.
i have a project in image processing that need to have ,still image form ezvidc60,moving video,and then send still images to a picturebox for processing.
how can i do it.
To capture still images, use the .SaveDIB method. A project that
shows how to capture video is included in the ezvidcap.zip download (see
above). Have a look at this page, which gives
a very simple example of a video capture program.
Your ezvidcap.ocx control seems pretty helpful. I want to be able to
start up my app using the previously selected drivers. Every time I
start the demo it prompts for a driver even PRIOR to the load event
occuring. Is there a way to save and recall the settings to fully
automate the start-up procedure. (Save settings to a file or a reg-key
etc.) I can do the coding if you can tell me how to intercept the driver
call! Your help would be appreciated.
This control was made by Ray Mercer. Your problem is something
that is happening with your computer and I don't think there is a way
around it. I have three video sources and the control always
chooses the correct source to use. Are all your video sources
I need to change a parameter thats i find into video display window. I call it by this:ezVidCap1.ShowDlgVideoSource, but how i can change
a single parameter about this window from source code ?
I don't think this is possible because each video source uses its own
settings. You would need an ActiveX control written specifically
for the video source to be able to change these settings.
My name is saeed.I want to reseve a video file from
webcam and send it to a PC for image processing without
saving on PC.Tell me the name of activex that can do it
and the website that I can download it.
