Tangra Video Capture - ASCOM Video Driver


 DOWNLOAD the latest version of Tangra Video Capture (v1.0.8)

Information for Developers

If you want to build an ASCOM driver for a video camera but you don't want to do all the work required to capture video via DirectShow and to record it in an AVI file, then you can use the Tangra Video Capture Base diver as your starting point. The driver is available as a library and a project template in C# where you only need to implement the members of the IVideo interface related to the control of your video camera. Everything else, including the receiving and recording of video frames, is already implemented in the provided base libraries.

Download the template for the video driver from here. It is distributed under the MIT license and can be used for commercial drivers.

The Tangra Video Capture Base library is released under an MPL license and the source code is available on GitHub. You are allowed to use the binary file of the library in commercial projects but any changes and improvements to it must be contributed back. If you are interested in taking part in the development of the Tangra Video Capture Base project please contact Hristo Pavlov.
