I need to capture frames from a streaming video inside the server to save as thumbnails. It's posible to recover the bitmap data directly from the stream in the server side?

    thanks a lot CyanBlue,
    but I think I can't use it because I need to capture one frame every X minutes in a streaming webcam and I think I can't use only one frame buffer and pause the stream. May be to use the NetStreamInfo object from the nestStream?

    You can always use seek() method to advance to where you'd like to go...  So, how about show the first frame, pause for a second, seek to 1 minute position, pause for a second and so on???
