Live streaming from GoPro to HoloLens

I want to display a live feed from a GoPro(or other ip camera) in a 2D window in HoloLens.
I am trying to create a 2D application in VS2015 but, I can't find any control to set source and display the stream.

The media element that I initially thought was the way to go, isn't really helpful.

Does anyone have any idea or solution that can help me in displaying the live stream on HoloLens?

    You can play live stream on Hololens using VLC app available on windows store. But I am not sure how to develop live stream app on Hololens. Anyone got any success on this?

    Thanks for raising that live streaming is possible with VLC. Good to know!

  • Hi, yeah, I tried the VLC app finally to get the demo done earlier last month.

    And, there are lot of apps on windows store as well like IP Camera2 which is more stable than VLC(in my experience) VLC would just freeze after few seconds.

  • @lgajbe It's not difficult to develop live stream app for hololens, if existing UWP app works then it's already done :smile:
