I am trying to code a program in C++ to capture images from multiple web cams simultaneously and save them automatically with minimum delay. I also want the program to be able to alter the properties of the webcam when required. I was thinking I could use the samples on Platform SDK (directshow AMCap) but I havent been able to build them. When I tried to build them using the C++ compiler, I kept getting errors like syntax errors and missing header file. I am using visual studio 2008 on XP (O.S). Can you please tell me what I have to do after installing Platform SDK and Visual C++ compiler? I would also appreciate other suggestions. Thanks in advance!
