  • There is no such filter available currently in windows CE as a component. but sample render filter is available in the windows CE public folder. see the following path


    This is a sample render filter, which will write the data in to a file using  File Sink filter. But instead of dumping data to file, you have to insert socket program to stream data through ethernet.

    Hope this give some pointer to you

  • Hi,
    VOIP video is supported in WinCE6.0 (see RTC library)
    Unfortunately you need to write a part yourself (or your HW-vendor).
    It has to do with compressing the stream, which is usually a hw-task.
    That is why MS says they cannot (will not) deliver such a component, not even a sw-non-compressing-veryslow-sample.

    Kind regards,

  • I have the same Project, But I got stuck at initial step.

    when I connect the UsbCam to the board (mini6410) and run the camera test app, nothing happens.

    I don't know what I should do
