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 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:
