I'm working on a videochatbox project using the AVphone 2.x controls from Banasoft (see their website <[url removed, login to view]>). The chatbox is build in Visual basic 6.0.
The Avphone control supports only the vfw interface (video for windows) . I've tried several codecs but they all seem to ignore the bitrate settings and deliver very poor videoquality at about 10 KB/sec (176x144 pixels image). The videocapture control raises an event at every frame and then it's manually send over a udp winsock control.
What i need is a good codec advice on how to be sure the codec obeys the bitrate. The codec maybe freeware or priced under 50 dollar. The codec has to be installed silently and a max size of 2 megabytes.
An advice stating:
- what codec to use (including format settings). The bitrate and quality requirements are very important
- what files to copy and what registry settings to make for silent install
- (if needed) changes in my videochatbox
You can work with the avphone 2.0 (just like netmeeting) to test the codecs and settings availible from the control.
