I am to present my project recently.This is very important you see I can't proceed with my project because I am not able to capture a video in my VB form from a video device attached to a PC using USB. How can I do that please help me.
Your project requires first a com control component to sniff the USB port, where you have connected your video device. Try to use the Microsoft Comm Control component. If you know that it is very easy. Another way is to use thw Window API
which has the following code to open.
Dim MyPortID as integer
Dim MyComStatus as long
Dir MyComError as string
Dim MyData as string
MyPortId=1 ' or 2 or 3 etc representing com1,com2 etc.
MyComStatus=CommOpen(MyPortID, "COM" & CStr(mytPortID), _
"baud=9600 parity=N data=8 stop=1")
If MyComStatus <> 0 then
'call Error handler
MyComStatus = commGetError(MyComError)
MsgBox "COM ERROR : " & MyComError
