Flash: Webcam Zooming or Autofocus?

Posted on 2009-12-20
Last Modified: 2013-11-11
I have an Actionscript app that's recording from a webcam. But it's not autofocusing like Skype Video would for example, so the users have to manually adjust their webcams.

What Actionscript code could I use to zoom in/out more, or alternately to autofocus?

If this is simply not supported by Actionscript, what API calls could do this through a client-side Windows or Macintosh program?

    No, ActionScript won't allow you do zoom in/out or autofocus...  

    I have no idea what other APIs are available...
