hi all,

I'm planning to build an application that plays the video
capture from web cam. Does anyone know where I should start?? Is there any interface I can use to get the video information? I'll probably use c++ in visual studio.net.

Thanks in advance,

You can use the VFW library (video for windows). I'm sure MSDN has a lot of examples and you can find a lot online. I wrote a program to display the webcam's video fairly quick, it's not too hard to pick up.
