Hi all

is there a videocam that comes with drivers that i can control? eg I would like a routine like CaptureFrame, and it returns a captured frame from the camera.

If not, what is the normal way to get frames from the cam? eg if i want to write a video conferencing application, how would i go about doing that?

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.
