Capturing video from a usb webcam


I want to build a program to process frames/images from a video in real time.
So, my first step is to build an application in Visual C++ in order to get images with my usb webcam and I should be able to see those images in a window in my computer. But I don't know how to do it. I suppose that there should be some code already available in the net, but where? Can anyone help me?

Thanks a lot

another option:
samples or examples folder has a MSVC project in it. it's called "simple". does more than just displaying the captured image but it's pretty trivial to get rid of extraneous code.

Hola Jaime

I've been looking to the first example, but they use a program that i cannot find called GraphEdit.... where is that program?

Thanks very much for your help!

Well, I have found it...! No worries about that! The problem was my version of SDK (the Graphedit has disappear after the one of Summer 04!!!)   ;)

I have now two filters conected and I have managed so that I can see my camera... but how can I integrate this into a Visual C++ program??? I mean, how can I generate a code to put inside of a C++ program?
