Products: Video Capture SDK .Net, Video Edit SDK .Net, Media Player SDK .Net

Sample code

  1. To draw a video on PictureBox, you need to add control to the form. Set BackColor property to Black and SizeMode property to StretchImage.

  2. Add a bool class member called applyingPictureBoxImage on Start button code set applyingPictureBoxImage to false before starting capture or playback.

  3. Implement the OnVideoFrameBitmap event to draw the frame.

private void VideoCapture1_OnVideoFrameBitmap(object sender, VideoFrameBitmapEventArgs e)
if (applyingPictureBoxImage)

applyingPictureBoxImage = true;

var image = pictureBox1.Image;
pictureBox1.Image = new Bitmap(e.Frame);


applyingPictureBoxImage = false;
  1. Add PictureBox clearing to the Stop button code. Code should be called after SDK control Stop method call.
while (applyingPictureBoxImage)

pictureBox1.Image = null;
