Hi,

my programs use AVICap which supports streaming video capture in real-time and the MCI (Media Control Interface).

it seems to me that to make the camera window compatible  with many more cameras then using the Directshow would be a much better choice for mach3..would seem to be the simple choice at least.

In a German forum, someone had problems was an older processor (800MHz). When he turned on the camera the system got very slow.
To help him find the reason for that, I've wrote that plugin. Since then the plugin was growing and growing. The camera you are using is obviously an industrial type.
If you find a solution or a way I can help you (without adding DirectX) please let me know.

Ok you dont need the whole of directx to use directshow, its included in the windows sdk,  There is a sample called amcap under samples/multimedia/directshow/capture which works with my camera.  It should be able to work without MFC?

Hi Adam,

the programs are downloaded a few hundred times and obviously running well. I don't think I will implement directshow,
which would would need a complete redo of the camera - part, sorry.
