    Hello again,
            I don't think that flash can really do that. As far as i know, flash can't even save text files. You may have to consider using another alternative to this.

    Accepted Solution

    Yes, you can, with Flash Communication Server. You can get the camera feed, publish a video stream with record option and save it on the server as a flv file.
