Hi.

Could some of you dll makers look into this:
https://www.ndi.tv/sdk/

Ndi video streaming is getting more popular.

I would like to get the stream as texture like with the webcam.

I don't like the Unreal logo in my programs. And with Agk, the programming is more rewarding as you all know.

Fun fact: Ndi streaming format is coming from Newtek, who made the Amiga Video Toaster.

This is the problem I am looking at with Photon, sure you can wrap the code and make a plugin but you can NOT charge a fee for the base proprietary code (as far as I am aware)

I sure would like some input from someone that knows the legality of such API's

I think the plugin should be free yes, but the work on it should be payed.(How many pizzas, PartTimeCoder ? )

They have also on their NDI tools set, NDI to webcam program, which converts NDI stream to webcam.

But somehow all other Windows programs can use that webcam but Agk's "SetDeviceCameraToImage"
does not recognize it.

SDK says Royalty Free., only the Advanced SDK requires Licensing.

This is going to take a few T-Bones and a couple bottles of chateauneuf du pape mate!

As with another request I had for a proprietary SDK wrap its the legality aspect, royalty free pertains to usage, as far as I am aware wrapping and compiling a proprietary SDK and giving it away is a grey area but charging or selling it is a massive NoNo, that's a summons I could do without, not sure I want to touch it

Find an open licence system and I'd be happy to take a look but not this commercial stuff.

What about this SRT protocol ?
It is an open source video transport protocol.

It's also starting to be popular with home and professional streaming (Obs, VMix, Vlc, ...)
