Accessing Camera and Renderer from a UMDF driver RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    We are upgrading our existing chat application to support Video chat, and in our existing architecture, we have followingmodules

    1) UWP Applicaion- For user interaction

    2) UMDF driver - Its has core stack for signalling with server and Tx , Rx of video data from/To server

    3) WinRT component - Its for accessing UMDF driver from UWP App


    Here, My concerns are about accessing Camera and Renderer(video surface) and video codecs at UMDF module.

    Does it possible to access Camera , video codecs and Video Surface from UMDF  driver??

    As UWP application module meant for user interaction, it has to create surface for rendering, Can I access handle of this surface at UMDF and render video data on it???

    I have gone through few examples and API's for accessing Camera, video codecs and rendering and observed that all UWP API's are very closely integrated, not possible pass handle of surface or Camera to UMDF driver from UWP Application.

    Does here I am missing something, does I can achive video chat with my existing architecture???

    Kindly help me. Thanks in Advance
