Example 1: playing a camera video (wait mode)

Top  Previous  Next

This example shows how to play a video from an IP camera in a "wait" mode: the component waits for each operation to complete. This mode is simpler but it is not recommended: an application freezes while waiting.


1. Place RVCamera1:TRVCamera and RVCamView1:TRVCamView on the form. Assign RVCamView.VideoSource = RVCamera1.

2. If you need a separate component for controlling the camera movement, place RVCamControl1: TRVCamControl on the form. Assign RVCamera1.CameraControl = RVCamControl.

3. Assign RVCamera1's properties: the camera address and the user name and password. For example:

CameraHost = 'novatron.dyndns.tv',

CameraPort = 8888

UserName= 'demo15'

UserPassword= 'demo15'

4. Assign RVCamera.CommandMode = rvsmWait.

5. Add in TForm1.FormCreate:

if RVCamera1.SearchCamera then
