I am working on a Motion-JPEG stream viewer for the Yawcam webcam streaming software. This allows you to enter your stream’s URL and choose the size for the display and it will stream the Motion-JPEG (MJPG) using Aforge’s Video library since I’m not writing a parser for the MJPG stream in VB.net.
Here’s a screenshot of the current version I’m working on. Everything is working and I’m now starting to test the authentication portion.
Here’s a video walkthrough of the progress I’ve been making.

Hopefully this will be built upon and offer a nice alternative to the browser based viewing of the live stream for Yawcam software.
This is being developed in Visual Basic 2010 Express and is currently tested to run on XP SP3, Windows 7 (32 and 64bit) and Windows Vista (32 and 64bit). It will require .NET framework 4 but I have built the first prototype with .NET 2 and it worked fine.

Nice job with this software, can you please let us know where we can download this?
I am still working on this and hope to get it out soon. My goal is to make get it working reliably and eventually will link to the download here. Thanks for the interest.
Almost ready for testing! Going to implement the authentication portion and test in the next day or so. I’ve updated this post with newer screenshots.
