Anyone direct me to a BASIC java class that will capture, display and record video from a USB webcam.  I have looked through a lot of code and it is either way to elaborate or incomplete.  I need to include a class in a program I have that can be called to start/stop recording by a click of a button.

Here's something I was playing around with, which works but needs attention. Maybe you can take it further.

import java.awt.BorderLayout;
import java.util.Vector;

import javax.media.CaptureDeviceInfo;
import javax.media.CaptureDeviceManager;
import javax.media.Manager;
import javax.media.MediaLocator;
import javax.media.Player;
import javax.media.control.FormatControl;
import javax.swing.JFrame;

public class MyCam{

	CaptureDeviceInfo cam;	
	MediaLocator locator;
	Player player;
	FormatControl formatControl;
	public MyCam(){
		try{
			
			Vector<CaptureDeviceInfo> list = CaptureDeviceManager.getDeviceList ( null );
			
			// Iterate list 
			for(CaptureDeviceInfo temp : list){
				
				if(temp.getName().startsWith("vfw:")){

					
					
					cam = temp;
					System.out.println("Selected : "+cam.getName().substring(4));
					break;
				}
			}

			System.out.println("Loading ...");
			
			locator = cam.getLocator();

			if(locator != null){

				
				player = Manager.createRealizedPlayer(locator);

				if(player != null){
					
					
					player.start();
					
					
					JFrame f = new JFrame();
					f.setTitle("Test Webcam");
					f.setLayout(new BorderLayout());
					
					
					f.add(player.getVisualComponent(), BorderLayout.CENTER);
					f.pack(); 
					f.setVisible(true);

				}

			}

		}catch(Exception e){
			e.printStackTrace();
		}

	}

	public static void main(String[] args) {
		new MyCam();
	}
}
