Video from VideoSourcePlayer to Bitmap?

Postby dgiang » Tue Jun 25, 2019 6:42 pm


I am creating a program which analyzes a video source with a frame grabber. My program analyzes the pixels of a Bitmap SourceImage variable. I am using AForge to connect a different frame grabber device. Is there a way to obtain the video source data and convert it to a Bitmap so my program can analyze it?

I am not sure about your frame grabber, the API you use to talk to it, etc. As for video sources implemented in AForge.NET Framework, they all provide video frames as Bitmap objects.
With best regards,
