WebCam control..

I just got myself a webcam. Unfortunately, the software that came with it didn't have too many features..so I want to build my own app in Delphi, that can control the cam. Any ideas?

1 Solution
Here is a list of stuff you might try. I have not tested these and it would depend on the webcam you use anyway since they are not all accessed the same. Beware though as what testing I have done in this area indicates that many of the components out there already are buggy. Essentially you will want to start looking for stuff that uses AVICAP32.dll or VidCap32. You may find that niether work but a search for delphi + AVICAP32.dll should result in several pages that have related information.

P.S.  For any year 2000 questions, special attention is needed to ensure the first correct response is awarded, since they are not in the comment date order, but rather in Member ID order.

Sorry. Thought I could delete this since I go tno further solving the problem.

THanks anyway
sageryd-->  You have tried to delete many of your open questions here.... as I stated above:

4. Delete the question (if it has no potential value for others).
  --> Post comments for expert of your intention to delete and why
  --> You cannot delete a question with comments, special handling by a Moderator is required.

For special handling needs, please post a zero point question in the link below and include the URL
(question QID/link) that it regards with details.

I have gone through many of them already and either refunded and closed them or commented as to why not.

I must disagree with your choice on this one.  You asked for help, and got plenty of it more than 5 monthgs ago.  The experts who so willingly stepped in to help you should be awarded for their efforts and assistance given.  It is not their problem that you did not remain active in your questions here.

Please finalize this .... if you need help splitting points, here is what you do:

In order to split points, this process is used:
Let us know which expert you intend to award in the primary question and the points you wish to grant.  We will then reduce the value of the original question to that value and you accept that expert's comment or Proposed Answer within that question.  Then please do the following for each additional expert you wish to award points:
Within that same topic area, post a new question for each expert at the point value you wish to grant.
Topic = Points for __expertname__
In the comments section please include the Question Link (QID number).
It is ideal that you also post this information in the original question, and include the new Question Link so they can quickly and easily find it, and an audit trail is maintained.
That's all there is to it.  The experts will then either add comments for you to convert to the Accepted Answer to then grade and close, or will Propose an Answer for you to then accept to grade and close.
These links are very helpful on site-related processes and Questions/Answers:
Thank you.
