Webcam

2 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

since doing anything with almost anything connected to your computer is fairly hard with auto it (joystick,scanner, etc...) i'm looking for help with a webcam. (hoping that this isn't impossible)

i've never used dll's before... so putting my bare code on here would just be a waste of bandwith....

i've found two dll's for webcams (attached at the bottom)

1. http://forums.gamemaker.nl/index.php?showtopic=104784

webcam.DLL

2. http://members.tripod.com/blitzpanno/newdll.zip

pbca3d2.dll

these came with almost no documentation... but i trust i can get help around here...

or can i get some help with this?

Any help/ideas will be appriciated

Aren't those DLLs just wrappers for AVICAP.DLL (16bit) or AVICAP32.DLL (32bit) Video for Windows?

Maybe you can just call them direct from within your AutoIT code using DLL calls.

http://www.windowsformsdatagridhelp.com/db...36-e5cf2ebb86b6 has a VB example which may be used to glean some ideas. See also http://www.codearchive.com/rate.php?rid=1752&go=1012 and http://babek.info/libertybasicfiles/lbnews/nl127/vidcap.htm

If you're just looking to get regular snaps from your webcam, try the Webcam Timershot that is bundled with Microsoft PowerToys for XP - it has done all the hard work for you. Download from here.
