    Cool Win10 IP Camera Support - Coming?

    Anyone else seen this:

    Announcing Windows 10 support for Network Cameras!

    Once paired to a Windows PC, network camera streams are routed through the existing Windows camera APIs.
    I presume that means DirectShow and the usual suspects.


    I think this is coming in 19H2/1909 which pushes out next month, but I may have the numbering confused between beta builds and final releases. Or maybe issues have been found with the feature that might delay its public release?

    Has anybody been following this? Or maybe played with it in the betas?

    Hmm, now I think it might be a 20H1 feature because it was announced for Insider Build 18995 and that seems too late for 19H2.

    I think you can already make a viewer now, without waiting for an update, by using Real Time Streaming Protocol. Two open source software VLC, and iSpy can show video streamed from IP cameras for testing.

    Well sure, you can acquire 3rd party libraries for common IP cam protocols. Some of the simpler protocols like Motion JPEG over HTTP can be handed fairly easily without 3rd party libraries.

    The implication of the change is that these will look like camera devices to Windows and be "plugged in" to the existing infrastructure much like a USB webcam today. RTSP will be built into Windows.
