Wireless Camera C# Question

can anyone help me to as in why my camera doesnt load in C# when I execute ? I wrote a C# program that basically detects the cameras on my laptop and then displays video, my built in camera works, but when I load the wireless camera the program terminates and no errors..
here s my code that I included, hopefully someone could answer this

using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.ComponentModel;
using System.Data;
using System.Drawing;
using System.Linq;
using System.Text;
using System.Windows.Forms;
using AForge.Video;
using AForge.Video.DirectShow;
namespace EZFirst
public partial class Form1 : Form

private FilterInfoCollection VideoCapture;
private VideoCaptureDevice FinalVideo;
public Form1()
private void Form1_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
VideoCapture = new FilterInfoCollection(FilterCategory.VideoInputDevice);
foreach (FilterInfo videoCaptureDevice in VideoCapture) {

comboBox1.SelectedIndex = 0;
FinalVideo = new VideoCaptureDevice();


hScrollBar1.Value= EZ_B.Servo.SERVO_OFF;
trackBar1.Minimum = EZ_B.Servo.SERVO_MIN;
trackBar1.Maximum = EZ_B.Servo.SERVO_MAX;
trackBar1.Value = EZ_B.Servo.SERVO_CENTER;


private void trackBar1_Scroll(object sender, EventArgs e)

private void hScrollBar1_Scroll(object sender, ScrollEventArgs e)
ezB_Connect1.EZB.Servo.SetServoSpeed(EZ_B.Servo.ServoPortEnum.D0, hScrollBar1.Value);

private void button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
if (FinalVideo.IsRunning == true) {

FinalVideo = new VideoCaptureDevice(VideoCapture[comboBox1.SelectedIndex].MonikerString);
FinalVideo.NewFrame += new NewFrameEventHandler(FinalVideo_NewFrame);

void FinalVideo_NewFrame(object sender, NewFrameEventArgs eventArgs)
Bitmap video = (Bitmap)eventArgs.Frame.Clone();

pictureBox1.Image = video;


Upgrade to ARC Pro

Have you looked at the example for camera usage in the EZ-SDK zip file. There are examples of how to use the camera.:)
yes I have, but there like 48 tutorials, could you tell which ones has to do with setting the camera to work in C# ?
like I don't want to track objects or anything complex, I just want to camera to display the live video on a panel.

I'll do the servos and movements and tracking in another project. Let me know
Tutorial 11 - Color Vision Tracking ... is a good place to start:)
I got it to work buddy, thanks:)
