playing mpeg4 or displaying jpegs using C#

What I have is a camera that can either be in mpeg4 format or jpeg
format. This camera is hooked up to my router and I can verify that
the camera is working using the provided software.

What I want to do is play the mpeg4 video using a homemade C# program
(I would settle for displaying the jpeg's if anyone knows how).

Any suggestions? I had heard something about activex but I don't know
how that works either.

Thanks.

Curtis,

Ok, so you know the format, but you don't know the transport mechanism.
That's even more important. You might know the IP of the camera (since it
is hooked up to your router), but what does it expect when you "talk" to it?
Does it expect an HTTP exchange? Does it expect something custom?

Hmmm I sure don't. I found the location by viewing the source code of
the webpage that comes with the camera... I had assumed I could just
point to that location and use it. I suppose I should try contacting
sony and see if they have any suggestions... Assuming it was just a
normal http would you know of any good places to learn how to do this
sort of thing?

Thanks again
