Recommendations for a Camera Video and Still OCX Control or Driver for VB6
Posted on 2014-07-24
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.
