    What type of image format is the camera feed in. Does it produce jpg's, bmp's, avi, mpg ect?

    Try a search for GDI or GDI++ to get the library to use non bitmap images.

    You will need to look into HDC's and BitBlt() for the images. The rest is a standard windows app.

    Start with a 'hello world' window and go from there. If you can't yet do a window look for Petzold's "Programming Windows" or try a search here for some good links to the tutes.
