Create Image in Flash from BitMapdata


I am using the bitmapdata class to create an image from a webcam.

I am then trying to save out this image using PHP, but the image colouring is all wrong.

Does anyone know if this is a flash or php problem and how to resolve?

PHP code:
//If GD library is not installed, say sorry
	if(!function_exists("imagecreate")) die("Sorry, you need GD library to run this example");
	//Capture Post data
	$data = explode(",", $_POST['img']);
	$width = $_POST['width'];
	$height = $_POST['height'];
	//Allocate image
	$image=(function_exists("imagecreatetruecolor"))?imagecreatetruecolor( $width ,$height ):imagecreate( $width ,$height );
	//imagefill($image, 0, 0, 0xFFFFFF);
	//Copy pixels
	$i = 0;
	for($x=0; $x<=$width; $x++){
		for($y=0; $y<=$height; $y++){
			$r = hexdec("0x".substr( $data[$i] , 2 , 2 ));
			$g = hexdec("0x".substr( $data[$i] , 4 , 2 ));
			$b = hexdec("0x".substr( $data[$i++] , 6 , 2 ));
			$color = imagecolorallocate($image, $r, $g, $b);
			imagesetpixel ($image,$x,$y,$color);
	//Output image and clean
	header( "Content-type: image/jpeg" );
	ImageJPEG( $image );
	imagedestroy( $image );

I wouldn't say it's a flash problem, it'll be something with the code. Can I ask what this does or is meant to do exactly? Are you trying to copy an image pixel by pixel to another image?

I just tried running it locally with one image as the input (on the command line) and it threw up an enormous number of notices and error messages.

used as3 in the end and sent on http rather than pixel by pixel
