Accessing a webcam

    I am looking at doing some programming involving a webcam connected to the PC.  I’ve never done that before, so I don’t know how to get started.  I’m sure it can be done with .NET, so where do I start to look into this?

    Check out the WIA (Windows Image Acquisition) library, which is a COM library that can be accessed rather easily from .NET. There was a good post about it in Coding4Fun quite a while ago, let's see if I can dig it up... there. This should do it.

    Thank you, Yggdrasil, I'll check into it. I'm a little surprised that it takes something extra - as in I'm surprised that the .NET Framework doesn't have something already baked in, to access a PC's webcam.
