Hi I am using VB6 SP6 on win7 SP1 PRO 64bit.
I have found an OCX named : VIDEO_CAMERA_ACTIVEX.OCX
This ocx is working well and i have integrated it into my program/project.
I am using it to capture video and stills from a logitech usb camera and save the resulting images to the hard disk.
I am asking if anyone knows of a better, easier, cheaper one that works well.
The reason I ask is:
1. This one is expensive at $89 per user.
2. Video output is *.AVI and still capture output is *.BMP which is all very nice but they are not compressed formats and take a lot of disk space. I would have preferred *.jpg and *.mp4 format.
3. I have managed to use +- 90% of it's capability but it's help file is terrible at describing the parameters to it's methods implementation.
Hi Moderator.. I think it is important to keep the question, because when some other poor sod wants to know about this he can know that there is only one ocx available and that either there are no others
