Accessing a camera from multiple applications [Windows]

Not sure where else to put this but I’m hoping to avoid having to have a UDP streamer to stream video from one camera to two different applications. Is this possible with the DirectShow? I’ve found some stuff on stack overflow that doesn’t seem supported. Anyone done this?

While I don’t have any experience with it, could you publish the camera surface to a texture using the Spyhon-like Spout? It does require the NV_DX_interop extension, but there seems to be an addon: https://github.com/Mat-Loz/ofxSpout

Excellent find, wow! Will give it a look.

edit: works BEAUTIFULLY. Thanks for the tip!

Awesome, glad to hear that Spout and the addon are in good shape.
