Hi, I've got a bunch of quicktime videos that I'd like to analyse - open them and do some image processing on every frame. From what I understand, that cannot be done with the quicktime ActiveX object. I've looked through the methods and properties and I couldn't find anything that would let me extract a single frame. So, I'm opening the topic again: How can I read quicktime .mov videos (on windows)? All I found was Chris's Quicktime VIs, which, to me, seems like a half finished job. It works but it's not great. The biggest problem I have is that it takes a very long time to read a video file - even if I don't display the frames in a picture control. This snippet here (you need to get the qtlib for it to work) runs at just 20fps for a 640x480 video: Is there anything better out there? Cheers, Tom
