Ok, firstly i know how old the tech is, but its in general easier to setup than DirectShow (which is also obsoleted anyway right?) but onto the question... Im using VFW to capture video from a webcam, which requires a capture control to be set up. Problem is i just want the video feed, and not have the control displayed. If i hide the control (even by moving it offscreen) then the capture callback stops triggering. Anyone had any experience with VFW and knows how to keep the callbacks triggering without having the control visible?
