Hi all,

I have a Application which does live Video Capturing , using Webcam, and show it to the user(every thing locally). still under stating :-)

Environment:- DirectShow, Win32api, C

Now, want to Compress and Decompress the video frames and show it .

In this regard, as my first step.....
--when ever a Button_click event is fired , i want to grab the image and save that image as JPEG.
--i could able to Grab the image (which is of DIB format).
--i even have the Library which compresses & De-Compresses BMP-JPEG -BMP where Input is .bmp file and Output is .Jpeg

-- When button clicked, i have the BitmapInfoheader & Image Bits.
can you please tell me how to Compress the .bmp(not from file) and save as .jpeg.

/////////////    code which captures Image on Button Clicked   /////////////
 
DWORD GrabFrame()
{	
       BYTE *lpCurrImage = NULL;
        m_pWC->GetCurrentImage(&lpCurrImage) 
        ......
        m_pImageBytes = pImage; // Copies the Image into m_pImageBytes		
        MakeBMPHeader();        // Header
...
}
void MakeBMPHeader()
{	
	DWORD  dwBitmapInfoSize;
	dwBitmapInfoSize = sizeof(BITMAPINFO);
	m_pBmp   = (BITMAPINFO *)new BYTE [dwBitmapInfoSize];
	m_pBmp->bmiHeader.biSize = sizeof(BITMAPINFOHEADER);
    m_pBmp->bmiHeader.biWidth = m_un32ImageWidth;
    m_pBmp->bmiHeader.biHeight = m_un32ImageHeight*-1;	
    m_pBmp->bmiHeader.biPlanes = 1;
    m_pBmp->bmiHeader.biBitCount =(unsigned short) m_un32ImageBits; //CamBits i.e 24
    m_pBmp->bmiHeader.biCompression = BI_RGB;
    m_pBmp->bmiHeader.biSizeImage = 0;
    m_pBmp->bmiHeader.biXPelsPerMeter = 0;
    m_pBmp->bmiHeader.biYPelsPerMeter = 0;
    m_pBmp->bmiHeader.biClrUsed = 0;
    m_pBmp->bmiHeader.biClrImportant = 0;
}
