You could come fairly close to full-screen by using the Animation control. To get real full-screen I'd guess you need to either use automation to run Windows Media Player, or use DirectPlay. Or look for a third-party control.

I'm guessing again, but you could probably store a video in a field of type "OLE object". You could also store a link to the video, and store the actual video in a separate file somewhere.

I've never used it, or seen any code that does. But if you go to Project | Components and select Windows Media Player (way down the end of the list), then you can easily add a WMP control to your form and have a play with the properties. I note that one of them is DisplaySize, one of the values for which is "3 - mpFullScreen". So this might be what you're after.

You're going to need to start with the driver for the camera - otherwise, your application might run into problems finding where the video is. Next, search (i.e. Google) into Twain Aquire sources. "Elliot" wrote:
