31 C++Builder XE3 videos in January - Jan 11 - Capturing bitmaps from two video cameras on Windows and Mac using C++Builder XE3

Posted by on in Blogs
During each day of January 2013, I am creating a new video showing you how to use the new C++Builder XE3 compilers for Win32, Win64 and OSX to create multi-platform, database, multi-tier, HD and 3D applications. In this eleventh video you will learn how to control the cameras and capture bitmaps from a computer that has two video cameras on a computer running Windows and Mac using C++Builder XE3 and FireMonkey.  You'll learn how to use the TMediaCodecManager class and the TVideoCaptureDevice class.  The same client application can be compiled and run on Win32, Win64 and OS X (if you have one or more cameras).   Stay tuned to my blog for additional C++ programming videos each day.

    Thats a great video David. Thank you very much. I like your voice and explenations and also files can be downloaded directly. All is perfect.

    Can u do a video about how to use an effected Image and paste it to on another bitmap ?

    I tried this but failed so I cant use image effects. Trying to understand that FireMonkey thing.
