Hello !
This is my first Post in this forum.
I want to say that I love WxDev-C++, and that I already finished a larger Hardware/Software Project for my University with it.
V 6.9 is a LOT faster than 6.8 !

I now have another Project where I need to show the Videostream from a USB Webcam in my WxWidgets Program.

As far as I know, I need to use the DirectShow API.
I downloaded the DirectX DevPak and tried to compile one of example Program froms the Platform SDK.
The Problem is, that this Programs depends on Microsofts ATL Header.
Does anyone have a example for DirectShow, that works with wxDevCpp or does someone know another solution ?

have you tried wxVideoCapture from the wxCode page.
it is a wrapper around the VFW API.

Yes I tried VideoCapture.
I could'nt compile it with WxDevC++ because the MinGW Version of vfw.h misses a lot of things.
I build my own dirty solution with VfW API, that works somehow.
I had to make my own VfW Makros, similar to the Microsoft VfW Makros.
