What can I build with BasicVideo?

BasicVideo is a set of components for fast video capture, recording and playback. The library allows very fast complex video manipulations with zero lines of program code.

 
BasicVideo is an inexpensive subset of VideoLab components designed for developers who need a low cost, robust and flexible capture, recording and playback functionality without complex video processing, analysis and manipulation.
 
Here are some examples of what can be done with BasicVideo

 

Capture and record video and audio (see .NET or VCL tutorial):

Play recorded video (see .NET or VCL tutorial):

/system/imgs/15/original/PlayVideo.jpg?1311795594

 


Our component libraries come in 3 versions a VCL - Firemonkey version (for Delphi / C++ Builder / RAD Studio XE4 to 10.1 Berlin), an MFC compatible Visual C++ version, and a .NET 2.0 and 4.0 (4.5 and 4.6 compatible) supporting Visual Studio 2005 to 2015.
 
The RAD Studio version is a set of native VCL and Firemonkey components of which all include now the powerful Mitov Runtime.
 
The Visual C++ version is a set of native Visual C++ classes (components).
 
The NET 2.0 and 4.0 (4.5 and 4.6 compatible) version is a set of managed .NET components.  The .NET version has the same performance as the native versions, and supports all the Microsoft .NET languages including Visual Basic, C#, J#, F# and C++/CLI.
 
Due to the unique architecture of the OpenWire platform, the components are implemented the same way in Managed .NET and native Windows (32 and 64 bit) environments. The code to control a component from VB.NET, C++/CLI, C#, and J#, Visual C++ MFC, Delphi, and C++ Builder is almost identical. This allows the developers to migrate and share code between the different environments thus significantly improving the productivity.

BasicVideo: Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Does BasicVideo support the format of my Video Files?
A: BasicVideo supports both Win32 API and DirectShow technologies. Win32 API will allow you to play only AVI files. If you decide to use DirectShow BasicVideo will use any DirectShow filter available on your system. If you have a DirectShow filter for a particular video format BasicVideo will recognize the format and use the proper filter. This means that BasicVideo is capable of using any format available today. If you have a file that you can’t play in BasicVideo, it means that you probably don’t have the proper DirectShow filter. Please search the web and download the filter needed for the particular format.
Q: I can’t play my video file! What is wrong?
A: In order to play format other then basic AVI you must use the DirectShow TVLDSVideoPlayer component. If you still can’t play the file, please check if you have installed a DirectShow codec for the file format. BasicVideo needs a codec available in the system in order to decode the file. A huge selection of codecs is available on the WEB.
Q: Do I have to purchase BasicVideo?
A: BasicVideo is free for non commercial purposes. This means that you can use it for personal pleasure, hobby, or evaluation purposes. If you are student you can also use it for free for your educational needs including school projects. If you are a tutor at present you also can use it for free for your classes. However in the near future a low cost tutor license will be available, and you will have to purchase it. Your students however will not need license to use the product at class.
Q: Is BasicVideo multithreading? Will it stop streaming while I move the window with the mouse?
A: Yes. BasicVideo is fully multithreaded and will not stop streaming while the main thread is busy.
Q: Does BasicVideo support DirectShow?
A: Yes. BasicVideo supports DirectShow 8.1 or higher.
Q: What version of DirectShow I need to run BasicVideo?
A: BasicVideo supports DirectShow 8.1 or higher.
Q: Can I capture and save bitmaps out of the video stream?
A: Yes. Check the CaptureBitmap in the demos directory.
Q: Can I create a movie from bitmaps?
A: Yes. Check the RecordBitmapsDemo in the demos directory.
Q: Can I process bitmap images with BasicVideo?
A: Yes. Check the ProcessBitmap demo project in the demos directory.
Q: Can I process the video faster than the normal video speed.
A: Yes. Check the VideoConvertDemo demo in the DirectShow demoes directory.
Q: I want to copy and paste parts of the video into a new file. Can BasicVideo do that?
A: Yes. BasicVideo uses DirectShow to play and record files. Many formats do not allow easy positioning and can’t be used with DirectShow Editing Services. BasicVideo offers a different approach. It allows you to play even non seek enabled file to a specific position and copy a portion of the file into a new one. Check the VideoConvertDemo demo in the DirectShow demoes directory.
Q: Can I play video files from a Web URL?
A: Yes. You can use the TVLDSVideoPlayer to play files as well as any video URL from the web.
Q: I want to use BasicVideo. Do I have to install DirectShow?
A: DirectShow is not required on your system if you are not planning to write application using the DirectShow components of the package.
