Problems testing WebCam Library

Feb 10, 2010 at 7:52 AM


I'm trying to integrate a photo capture from a webcam in a C# applitation, so I have tried to run WinFormCharpWebCam solution and when it start to run, no image is shown in the form....the if I click on the START button the next error message that appears in the alert pop-up window is:

An error ocurred while capturing the video image. The video capture will now be terminated. Referencia a objeto no establecida como instancia de un objeto.

I have been testing also some demos with AVICAP32.DLL and it seems to be the same problem.

Could be related with my webcam drivers? It's a Creative LIVE! CAM video IM Ultra

Thank you very much for your help in advance.

Greetings Hector

I am using a Logitech Quickcam Orbit AF Web camera and both the WinFormCsharpWebCam and the WPFCSharpWebCam demos work fine on my system.

I am also using Visual Studio 2008 if that helps. 

I believe that I would suspect your camera or driver.  Have you looked to see if that camera has other problems listed while working with Skype or other applications?  I seem to recall that camera having several comments about problems of some sort.

Hope this helps.
