VB6 Video Capture (avicap) without halting application

I am trying to add video capture capabilities into my application.

I have tried various examples such as:
http://ej.bantz.com/video/

They all use the Video For Windows capture method via avicap32.dll

The problem is that when capture is started, you cannot do anything else in the host application (other than receive callbacks) until the capture is ended (in the examples this is done by clicking the mouse button)

I require the capture to happen asynchronously and be programatically stopped via some form of command.

Any suggestions?
