at fist you need to get acquainted with the technologies available for you.
AFAIK there are 2 of them VfW and DirectX.

First one is rather old, it is better not to use it.
About the second one you can read here:

Hi, Im trying to develop a Visual C# .NET app. that uses DirectShow filters to capture video from camera source. However, after going through a series of articles, I've seen that DirectShow is not directly supported in Visual C#.NET. Im wondering if there's any way to use the video-capture filters of DirectShow in Visual C#. Otherwise, would it be possible to create a Visual C++ DLL that uses DirectShow filters to capture video from a WDM...

Hi everybody! Im developing an application which involves capturing video from a webcam. I use video for windows API. The program doesn't capture real-time video, but it only captures still-images from time to time. When the program is waiting and doing nothing, the CPU is at 50%. I would like to know if there is any posibility to reduce the amount of CPU used. By the way, the code that I used to start the still-image capture

Dear all, I've got a video capture device. Device manager shows "nVidia WDM Video Capture (universal)" driver in "Sound, video and game controllers" category. Also, Windows Movie Maker, and other standard video capture tools can record video from the device. But, I've got no idea how to read transmitted data in a C# application. All I'm gonna do is to show the real-time movie on an appropriate control on my form.

Hello, I was wondering if anyone knows of an easy way to capture an image from a digital camera and put it into a picturebox. I need to be able to view the video feed and click a capture button that takes a snapshot of what is showing at the time. Any ideas? I have a capture card also, if that helps. Thanks.

Hi, I am working on an access app and need to capture still images from a monitor connected to medical equipment. The video out port on the monitor is connected to a video card in the computer that will run my app so I am assuming I can capture this image by using video for windows apis? I simply want a button on a form that saves the image to disk in bmp or jpg format. Has anyone got an example of this? Thanks in advance, Ghostrider.

Hi Everyone, Do any of you gurus out there have any suggestions regarding capturing audio/video from a video capture card in C#. Although I've written other programs, I've never worked with audio/video sources before. I've seen other people recommending DirectShow.NET. Is this one of the more popular libraries to use? Would anyone recommend other third- party libraries? Thanks,

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
