Hy all !!

I have developed algorithms for video streams from web camera. Now I wish to extend the algortihms using a wireless cam. For me to interface the wireless cam i require the tv tuner card. I am able to get the video streams from the wireless cam to the comp using the software that comes along with tv tuner card. How do i aquire these images on to my C# forms like we do to aquire videos streams from web cam ?

Regards

A new development which makes me feel closer to my goal !

I switch on my original C# code and the camera select window prompts me 'conexant capture' (which is the tv tuner card processor) click ok and as usual comes the grained screen ( as seen on tv when cable is unplugged ). Now I open the tv tuner card default software , although the tv tuner is not able to connect with my wireless cam but astonshingly it the grained picture starts streaming te wireless video streams. Now ican switch off the tuner card software and still the streaming continues and i m able to use my original IP codes

Is there any way i can have the entire thing in my control ?

Regards

Hello,

I had similar problem in the past, but it was not hard to fix in my case. I have a wireless analogue camera, receiver and then USB capture board, which gets signal from receiver and produces digital images. Initially I had the same problem as you - it was possible to detect the device (in Motion Detection sample, for example), but no correct output. Then I used software, which was provided with capture board, and after changing some setting I got a view from my camera. Try experimenting with video signal setting, like PAL, NTSC, etc.
