Capturing frames from a webcam
I am trying to capture frames from a webcam. I am using the vfw library with the capture macros. However, for the moment I only managed to playback the webcam in a window. I want to intercept the frames *before* they are displayed, for further processing.
The macro capGrabFrameNoStop(hWnd) seems to be appropriate.
But the problem is that it only displays the actual frame on the capture window. I want to intercept this frame before it is displayed.
The point is not to actually see what the camera sees but process it.
Thanx for the help
