How to implement Onvif IP camera video server in C#

In this tutorial you can learn more about writing codes in C#, which handle an IP camera using Ozeki Camera SDK.

These lectures cover how you can create an Onvif IP camera video server, to which you can connect an USB or an old RTSP camera and then reach it as an Onvif IP camera.

Furthermore, you can learn how to send video using this server to smartphones (as well as Android, iPhone, Windows Mobile phones).

You can find a clear explanation (including code snippets and GUI screenshots) for every example related to the functionalities mentioned above. The full source code of each example project can be downloaded and the FAQ section gives answers for the most commonly asked questions.
