Windows Phone 8.1 Windows.Media.Capture API and Preview Frames

The Featured Discussion Board Post this week is Windows Phone 8.1 Windows.Media.Capture API and Preview Frames started by Oliver Ulm

Oliver finds it quite easy to access preview frames from the camera using the APIs from Windows Phone 8.0. On Windows Phone 8.1, he observes that it cannot be done the same way as in the previous version. He wants to know if there is any way to do this other than the only reference that he has been able to find.

Lee McPherson shares his experience of how he has gone about this by modifying one of the Media Foundation Transforms that exists in the Media Extensions sample for Universal Apps. He reiterates that he wants to share it on the Wiki. Yan Verdavaine refers to the Real Time Filter Demo code sample, which Lee finds to be a good solution.

We featured this discussion because it highlights ways to preview frames in Windows Phone 8.1.
