See more: C#3.0 Video directshow
Hi, I have compiled the sample PLayCap (http://sourceforge.net/projects/directshownet/files/) from the directshow.NET (http://directshownet.sourceforge.net/) website in C#.
 
PLayCap - This application creates a preview window for the first video capture device.
 
Although the program works fine, i need to add buttons to the form. I cannot do that since, the video capture is displayed on the entire form. I want it to be displayed on a picturebox, for instance picturebox1. So that I can move the picturebox1 a little up and put some buttons.
 
Does anyone know how to do that ?
 
Many Thanks

Well, just quickly looking at the source code, DirectShow uses an IVideoWindow.
 
In the source code, it sets the owner of the IVideoWindow to the form.
 
You could, instead, probably use a panel and just change the line:
 
hr = this.videoWindow.put_Owner(this.Handle);
 
to
 
hr = this.videoWindow.put_Owner(this.panel1.Handle);
 
Then, you would also have to change the ResizeWindow routine to use the size of the panel, instead of the size of the form's clientSize.
