C# Webcam/camera image capture and WPD RRS feed

  • Question

  • Ok folks, it's 2012, Windows 8 is about to release and I need to know what the best solution going forward is for capturing an image from a webcam in C#.

    I am rebuilding a C# winform app that will need to run in win XP environments all the way up to Win 8.

    What I have read so far suggests that the way to go forward with this is using WPD.  The problem I have is that I have no idea how to integrate WPD into a windows form app.  Don't get me wrong, I'm comfortable in the general C# environment, but I am a complete n00b when it comes to hardware integration and calling on things like webcams to supply data to me.

    All the decent tutorials i can find are for WIA.

    many of the soltions I find are rehashes of code dating back to 2005 or worse.

    If anyone can point me to a walkthrough on creating a winform app in c# using WPD to capture images I would be very gratefull.

    I'd kill for an "How do I" video on this.

    Thanks in advance..
