Is there a way to test an IP camera to see if it can be samples without showing the preview? I'd like to show the state of a camera without actually sampling it. Something like a ping. Could I create a mvsmartcontrol with the IP source filter and not show an image or dialog. Just see if once I set the URL that it is initialized?

Thanks for any suggestions,

Andy

Andy,

You could use the IP camera Source filter in combination with the Null Renderer, set the URL and poll the state of the filter to see whether it initializes.
