Using webcam with C# web applications

Control web cameras from browsers with Dynamic Webcam API

Introduction to the Webcam Library

Dynamic Webcam SDK is a browser plugin which enables users to acquire images from a webcam, edit and then upload/save them to a database, web server or local disk. Also, it can capture a live video stream into a container and grab a snapshot to be exported to a file/binary. With the webcam API, software developers can integrate image capture, processing and webcam control into browsers.

The plugin works with all webcams that are compatible with Windows Image Acquisition (WIA) and USB video device class (UVC).

It can be developed as a browser-based webcam plug-in or with ActiveX®. Two editions are provided for different browsers: ActiveX Edition for IE and Plugin Edition for other browsers on Windows OS.
