nanoStream ActiveX Plugin – VisualC++ and MFC

This tutorial shows how easy it is to create a custom Live Encoding and Streaming application with the nanoStream plugins, based on VisualStudio, C++ and MFC.

This tutorial was created with VisualStudio 2008, but should work similar with VS 2010.

Position and resize the control window accordingly.

Create a class member variable for the control for simpler access:
