  • EASY rearview camera support (w/ a little help)

    Ive found a program called FullscreenTV that utilizes capture devices on a PC and makes them full screen or custom sizes. Problem is there is now window name for me to embed in MediaCar. The author of this program has her source code on her website for you to download. W/ a little bit of help from you programmers out there, Im sure someone can easily give it a window name so it can be embedded. All you need is some sort of capture device, probably any TV card, capture card, or webcam... an easy resolution for us wanting to utilize a rearview cam.

    UPDATE.
    I was able to link the Launch INI file to a batch file w/ the command line parameters telling it where to put it on the screen and size of the window. Works well, but I cant seem to close it out. Its always on top if you want it to be, but it will not close out w/ Mediacar, and I cant right click to close it w/ a touchscreen w/o effort. Anyone have a program that will give the window title in C++?

              Looks like just a standard MFC App. If all you want is the program to have a window name I can easily add that when I go home today and have access to visual studio.

                What specifically do you want the code changed to do?

                Please list them and I'll take a look...

                  Basically we need a window name to embed in media car. By default its full screen. and resized gives no window title.

                    Ok, what title would you like, and do you want it to start full screen?

                      full screen doesnt matter. were embedding it in media car anyway.
                      title Fullscreentv or whatever.

                        Try this, I have given it a caption and made that caption "MediaCar", since I did it before seeing your response.

                        I can make it any size/style you like, caption, bordered, offset from x/y...

                        The way it works is to create a regular windows window, then it overlays on top of that the DirectShow video render stream, so some of the typical things that you would see are a little different here.

                        I haven't tried it with MC because the only system I could find that had a video capture source (otherwise the program wont start) doesnt run MC. If you have problems I can put MC on there and reproduce the trouble you are having, but hoped to not to have to do that.

                        If this works for you I'll email the programs author and let him/her know so we aren't breaking anyones license restrictions here.

                          The app runs, it just gives a white box instead of showing the source.
                          I used media car to launch it and look for *MediaCar*, but Id change that cause thats the program running behind the scenes
                          can u give it a title bar and start it @ 700x500 for test purposes?

                              I just ran it and it showed both the web cam and the TV capture card correctly, so I know it still works fine. Keep the old program handy to test with that to make sure something else hasn't changed...
