Get video stream from Pixy without PixyMon
I'd like to know....Is it possible to bypass PixyMon and bring the streams of video and data in another program or ? If so, how I can do this?

I'm not sure I understand the question, but you can get video through libpixyusb. This thread might help:

Thanks for the replay.
Anyway, in that post they're talking about getting a frame, I think, but I need to get video stream by Pixy without PixyMon.
I mean, using Pixymon I can see what Pixy see through USB connection, but I would like to take the video in another program so I do not have to install PixyMon.
Maybe is a strange question, but is it possible to do this?

PixyMon gets video by getting successive frames in the same way it's done through libpixyusb. There is no other way to get video from Pixy.
Hope this helps!

Oh, I see. Thanks Edward!
So I need to get successive frames like Jim does (http://cmucam.org/boards/9/topics/5106?r=6183#message-6183)
I seen your answer here
So, if I understand correctly, I can't work on windows, isn't it?
I must follow the steps to the second here
then build Jim's code and execute it like step 3 suggests?

We don't have (official) support for libpixyusb in windows because most users use Pixy in dedicated (embedded) applications. But there have been some users that ported libpixyusb to Microsoft .NET for use in Windows:
But you have the right idea-- libpixyusb is how you get raw frames from Pixy.
