I need to use the javascript to get a capture from a camera that is connected to my PC,
So I need like a frame to see my picture through it, and then capture what I see on that frame.

I need some code that I can include to my web page.

That can't be done with Javascript. You would need a Java applet or server side code (ASP.NET).

To expand on Timbo's statement:
  Javascript, in and of itself, has no 'hooks' for hardware/software.  If you cannot use a server-side language, you might search for an activeX object -- however, if one exists, it implies the user must agree to its usage.
