My latest article and library is now live on the brand new Coding4Fun site, now on Channel 9, and over at CodePlex. This project allows you to very easily decode a MJPEG (Motion JPEG) stream from a network camera (or any other source) into a consumable type for WinForms, WPF, Silverlight, XNA and Windows Phone 7 (both Silverlight and XNA).
The MJPEG Decoder library started life as a project for the t-shirt cannon built for the MIX10 keynote. The original plan was to have an IP camera attached to the robot for a real-time video stream from the bot's perspective, but the feature wound up being cut for time, and due to some issues rendering the video on the very early Windows Phone 7 tools. The library has been sitting around a while, has gone through several rewrites and now supports almost every platform I can think of. With the new Coding4Fun up and running, it was time to polish it off and get it posted.
Take a look at the article, download the binaries and source, and let me know how it works!
