Software development is not just copy pasting. You should learn to write your own code. Now you have code written in another language for your reference. Either you use it in your project or convert it to VB.NET

What does it mean that a lot of people are having the problem ? You want somebody to write code for them ? Then why can't they write themselves?

i have used the avicap class to save the video file in "avi" format but it is not being saved..
here is the code i used..
Private Sub Button3_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button3.Click
Dim save As Integer
save = MsgBox("Do you want to save your recording video", MsgBoxStyle.YesNo + MsgBoxStyle.Information, "Recording Video")
If (save = MsgBoxResult.Yes) Then
Dim saveName As New SaveFileDialog
saveName.Filter = "Avi file(*.avi)|*.avi"
If saveName.ShowDialog = Windows.Forms.DialogResult.OK Then
' SendMessage(hWnd, WM_CAP_FILE_SAVEAS, 0, "C:\RecordedVideo.avi")
SendMessage(hWnd, WM_CAP_FILE_SAVEAS, 0, saveName.FileName)
End If
End If
Me.Cursor = System.Windows.Forms.Cursors.Default
Button2.Enabled = True
Button3.Enabled = False
End Sub
i'l suggest to use Emgucv
