Hey Jeremy,

The Kinect SDK does give you access to both the RGB and Depth video bitmaps.  So, essentially in the code, I have to first connect to the Kinect sensor.  Then initialize it for either RGB or Depth map output and then convert the bitmap returned into a Firefly bitmap (using the Firefly_Bridge.dll).  Then, you just have to create a component that visualizes the bitmap on the screen.  Since I had most of this done using the webcam video stream component, this part was relatively easy.

Quick question. Since the kinect isn't technically supposed to be used as a webcam how did you get it to pick up a video stream?
