I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

No.  PHP runs on a web server, the webcam runs on a client computer or workstation.  I supposed you could put a webcam on a web server if it was your own computer.  But even then, PHP is not suited for that kind of hardware operation.  Don't webcams come with software to do that?
