what i wanna build is supposed to be easy but the sdk that came with the camera is for c++ and i have no idea how to use it and they dont answer my emails


i am a beginner on vb net

i tried the OZEKI Camera SDK
and it worked but it is not licensed
and i built it on C# witch i dont understand
and i couldnt make it work without pressing on the button
and it takes a round 3 seconds before streaming

C#
using System;
using System.Windows.Forms;
using Ozeki.Media;
using Ozeki.Camera;

namespace VideoCameraViewer03
{
    public partial class Form1 : Form
    {
        private IIPCamera _camera;
        private DrawingImageProvider _imageProvider = new DrawingImageProvider();
        private MediaConnector _connector = new MediaConnector();
        private IIPCamera _camera2;
        private DrawingImageProvider _imageProvider2 = new DrawingImageProvider();
        private MediaConnector _connector2 = new MediaConnector();
        private VideoViewerWF _videoViewerWF1;
        private VideoViewerWF _videoViewerWF2;
        public Form1()
        {
            InitializeComponent();

            // Create video viewer UI control
            _videoViewerWF1 = new VideoViewerWF();
            _videoViewerWF1.Name = "videoViewerWF1";
            _videoViewerWF1.Size = panel1.Size;
            panel1.Controls.Add(_videoViewerWF1);
            _videoViewerWF2 = new VideoViewerWF();
            _videoViewerWF2.Name = "videoViewerWF2";
            _videoViewerWF2.Size = panel2.Size;
            panel2.Controls.Add(_videoViewerWF2);


            // Bind the camera image to the UI control
            _videoViewerWF1.SetImageProvider(_imageProvider);
            _videoViewerWF2.SetImageProvider(_imageProvider2);

           
        }
        
        // Connect camera video channel to image provider and start
        private void connectBtn_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            _camera = IPCameraFactory.GetCamera("192.168.0.64:80", "admin", "12345");
            _connector.Connect(_camera.VideoChannel, _imageProvider);
            _camera.Start();
            _videoViewerWF1.Start();

            _camera2 = IPCameraFactory.GetCamera("192.168.0.64:80", "admin", "12345");
            _connector2.Connect(_camera2.VideoChannel, _imageProvider2);
            _camera2.Start();
            _videoViewerWF2.Start();
        }

     
        private void Form1_Load(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
        {
            _camera = IPCameraFactory.GetCamera("192.168.0.64:8000", "admin", "12345");
            _connector.Connect(_camera.VideoChannel, _imageProvider);
            _camera.Start();
            _videoViewerWF1.Start();

            _camera2 = IPCameraFactory.GetCamera("http://192.168.0.64:8000", "admin", "12345");
            _connector2.Connect(_camera2.VideoChannel, _imageProvider2);
            _camera2.Start();
