Hello everyone.

We have decided to phase out the Mixed Reality Forums over the next few months in favor of other ways to connect with us.

The first way we want to connect with you is our mixed reality developer program, which you can sign up for at https://aka.ms/IWantMR.

The plan between now and the beginning of May is to clean up old, unanswered questions that are no longer relevant. The forums will remain open and usable.

On May 1st we will be locking the forums to new posts and replies. They will remain available for another three months for the purposes of searching them, and then they will be closed altogether on August 1st.

So, where does that leave our awesome community to ask questions? Well, there are a few places we want to engage with you. For technical questions, please use Stack Overflow, and tag your questions using either hololens or windows-mixed-reality. If you want to join in discussions, please do so in the HoloDevelopers Slack, which you can join by going to https://aka.ms/holodevelopers. And always feel free to hit us up on Twitter @MxdRealityDev.

Live video stream from HoloLens?

We have come up with a few demo scenarios where it would be useful to display a live video feed of what the HoloLens wearer is seeing. Is there a recommended way to do this?

This seems to be possible as the Microsoft HoloLens Store App does this. This app uses a REST API exposed from the device itself, is this api documented? It would be easy enough to reverse engineer but we wanted to stay within the lines if possible. Would there be any performance considerations in doing something like this?
