Video Encoding In Visual Basic
I recently had a request from a company that needs to pass some video from vcr to the computer but in means of using visual basic instead of the software it comes. They don't need an advanced encoding or stuff like that, they only need to pass video from vcr to the computer in which it is saved on a given directory and at the same time saving the path into the database, also to be able to play it in a form in visual basic and be able to capture any image from the video or even record a small segment of video into another video file. They want to skip the step of encoding the video through another program and then use visual basic to browse where is the file in order to save the path of it, so by having all these options on forms in visual basic is the most preferable way. Does anybody know any ocx or component that let me handle all this in VB???? I'll appreciate any suggestion / help.
Play Video -- Visual Basic 6
To anyone who can help me, i am in desperate need of assistance. I am working on a project that involves playing video files. At the present time I am using windows media player but am not tied to it, and can use any tool to play the video clips.
The question I have is: How can i preload clips so that I can have them play one after the next with no delays or pauses. I tried to have two windows media player compenents so that when one was near completed the other one would load the next clip, but i wasnt able to make one visible and one visible after the first two, it always kept the second one on top.
Please, if oyu have any suggestions or experience with this, please, i beg of you to offer your guidenance as I am growing desperate.

Capturing Video From Webcam
I've got a USB webcam. I wish to view the moving picture coming from it, like NetMeeting. Netmeeting - you don't need to specify which camera you are using - it takes the one connected, so therefore there must be a universal protocol used. Netmeeting doesn't search for the drivers. How would I go around doing this?. How would I autodetect? My camera is called a Cool iCam, made by Aiptek.

Screen (Video) Capturing In VB?? Looking For Suggestions
Alright I want to make a Screen capturing program just like sharing your desktop within windows. I have seen some samples, but those work with bitmaps and TCP and that's a way to slow method.

Video Capture Stops Capturing When App Is Minimized
I'm using some ported code from Microsoft on using their video capture API to make a webcam app. The app runs beautifully except for one thing. The preview stops previewing when the app is minimized.
My app takes the snapshots and uploads like it's supposed to, but it's uploading shots of the preview window as it was just before it was minimized. The preview window doesn't begin showing the capture again until it is brought back up.

How Can I Find The RGB Value Of A Pixel In A Playing Video?
I want to find out the RGB value of a pixel in the video I've got playing in my program. I know how to use the point method, but that seems to only work on things directly connected to the form.
I used the following code to play a video:
returnstring = Space(127)
'Avifile to play
erg = mciSendString("close video", returnstring, 127, 0)
FileName = "G:AngleRotationPointsYeah!.avi"
erg = mciSendString("open " & Chr$(34) & FileName & _
Chr$(34) & " type avivideo alias video", returnstring, _
erg = mciSendString("set video time format ms", _
returnstring, 127, 0)
erg = mciSendString("play video from 0", returnstring, _
But that opens the video in a new window and then I don't know how to get pixel colors. Any ideas?
