Hi!

I've seen/read about applications displaying a videostream inside an OpenGL application/window.

Can you direct me to some sourcecode for doing this?

Are there any libraries or functions that I can find on a web-site somewhere?

-Thanks!

I've checked out http://www.sulaco.co.za/opengl2.htm but I need sourcecode to be C or C++...

The lesson #35 uses an AVI-file.

Do you know of similar code for using images from a camera (live) ?

Thanks again :-)

Have you looked at SDL(sound device library) www.libsdl.org (http://www.libsdl.org)
I think they have some video support, maybe even streaming video.

I remember the subject of streaming video, has been on here in the past, did a quick google search and came up with the following on streaming video to opengl.

Note this example uses DirectX to capture the video stream then opengl to render it.

Also on the ATI website had some stuff on video stream playback.
