Issue Details

I have an RSTP (Real Time Streaming Protocol) video stream that I would like to see in LabVIEW. How do I do that?

Solution

The easiest way to stream video over RSTP to be viewed in LabVIEW is to call into VLC's DLLs using ActiveX. This DLL is automatically installed on your system when you install VLC. Some examples of how to create and control the VLC instance within LabVIEW are provided below in the Related Links section.
