USB Webcam bitmap stream question


Is it possible to stream the data from the webcam over usb without displaying it on a screen.
What i mean, is to get picture bitmap to make some calculations. displaying it to screen makes performance issues. all examples draw the picture on a screen bitmap and then get the data from this bitmap.



I didn’t test how it is faster but I am sure that it will be faster if you don’t call Flush() to display on LCD if you don’t need to display.


Why display on screen? Once you have bitmap object, you can do whatever you like with it, including sending it over network.


Thanks, seems to be logical, i will give it a try.
