WHAT I HAVE:
Visual Basic 2019, .NET 4.6.1, WinForms, Windows 10 Home laptop
I downloaded WebEye.Controls.WinForms.WebCameraControl from NuGet, and tried to run a VB.NET WinForms program using the control, only to get just a black screen. I then dowloaded OpenCvSharp and tried again with it instead; the same result! What am I doing wrong?! Somehow I get the feeling it's not the choice of control.library. Is there something about webcam settings? I need a WinForms-compatible tool that can reliably work with most users webcams (starting with mine)--preferably free or for less than $250.
PS. I think PVSMediaPlayer will work (I've tried its sample programs)--and it's free. How hard is it to set up a simple webcam photo-capture with it?
PPS. Please respond ASAP, and give any code in VB.NET if possible (although I can convert to that).
