i am working on a project and need to stream video through mvvm pattern.i got video in code behind.but i can't get video in mvvm pattern.

in xaml for button and image control :-

<Button Command="{Binding StartCommand}"  Content="Start" Grid.Row="4" Height="38"      Margin="9" Name="btnwebcamstart"  Width="{StaticResource btnWidth}"/>

<Image Source="{Binding Source=Imagevideo}"   Margin="9" Name="patientvideo" Stretch="Fill"  Width="120" Grid.RowSpan="2" Height="104" Grid.Row="1" />

i just make one image property:

public Image Imagevideo
               return imagevideo;
               imagevideo = value;

WebCam is a .cs file .
in constructor i write:-

WebCam webcam=new webcam();
   webcam.InitializeWebCam(ref  Imagevideo);
   this.StartCommand = new DelegateCommand<object>(this.patientvideostart);
   public void InitializeWebCam(ref System.Windows.Controls.Image ImageControl)
           webcam = new WebCamCapture();
           webcam.FrameNumber = ((ulong)(0ul));
           webcam.TimeToCapture_milliseconds = FrameNumber;
           webcam.ImageCaptured += new WebCamCapture.WebCamEventHandler(webcam_ImageCaptured);
           _FrameImage = ImageControl;
     void webcam_ImageCaptured(object source, WebcamEventArgs e)
           _FrameImage.Source = LoadBitmap((System.Drawing.Bitmap)e.WebCamImage);
    public static BitmapSource LoadBitmap(System.Drawing.Bitmap source)

           ip = source.GetHbitmap();

           bs = System.Windows.Interop.Imaging.CreateBitmapSourceFromHBitmap(ip, IntPtr.Zero, System.Windows.Int32Rect.Empty,



           return bs;


i just call one start method from .cs file

public void patientvideostart(object parameter)


//webcam.InitializeWebCam(ref  Imagevideo);

in code behind "ref imagevideo" is a image control .i changed to a property"ref Imagevideo".so in here i got the error.
"A property,indexer or dynamic member access may not be passed as an out or ref parameter"

what i can do for getting the video streaming in mvvm.advance thanks..

The error is pretty clear - you can't pass a property to a ref parameter of a method.

You need to make a temporary:

var circle = painting.Circles[mutationIndex];
MutatePosition(ref circle, painting.Width, painting.Height);
painting.Circles[mutationIndex] = circle;

That being said, mutable structs are often a bad idea. You might want to consider making this a class instead of a struct.

Have a look at the following CP article: Using YouTube API with MVVM-Light-Toolkit[^] - it might shed some light on the issue.
