Hey, I'm performing research on tracking applications using video cameras. My background however is civil engineering, so my programming experiece is limited. I'm starting to play around with Visual c++ but haven't found a way of opening a live video stream (my cameras are connnected to a network) in a window in c++. Any suggestions you might have would be greatly appreciated


Easiest thing to do, from experience, is to download VLC Media Player and read up about its networking functionality.
