View Full Version : Controlling DV camcorder through USB?

September 19, 2003, 14:08:34
I need the full control over a number of different DV devices using the USB port in a C++ 6.0 application.
Does this library allow the full control of DV devices (record, play, etc... and specially the physical zoom feature) using the USB port?

Best Regards.

If you have a WDM driver, that supports DV devices through USB, then it is possible to control the devices via IC Imaging Control. But the physical zoom property is not the same property as the DirectShow zoom property and will not work with DV Devices in my opinion.
The DV Device control works through the “external transport” interface. There is no zoom defined.
But you can download the trial version of IC Imaging Control at
or the trial of IC Capture (ready to run application) at
