    Default Getting Started Help (:

    Hello, i have a new project! after months of robust robotics work, i finally fine some time to do some more complicated java work. i have been doing alot of java work, and have had alot of questions on this forum, but i have not yet done anything i found to be TOO complicated after a little studdying. i have a large project in mind, but i would like to set up some concepts and smaller side programs to build up to it. so, step one, i would like to have a GUI window, such as a JFrame, that would display live feed video from say, my laptops webcam, or an external webcam on my desktop. all i need help with at the moment is where to start. some webcam programing terms and snipets/tuts would be nice. i have all the GUI stuff learned and can do that with ease. thank you for reading this spelling flawwled wall of text (:

    I have no idea how to integrate web camera feed into a Java program and would guess that it would be incredibly difficult to do from scratch. My guess is that you're best off Googling to see any public domain libraries are available that do such a thing, or failing that, find a decent library to buy and integrate it into your program. Much luck with your project, and please keep us up to date on its progress!

    See, thats where i think the line devides, as ive seen in my limited reaserch, that its integration may be very tedious, but not nescecary hard. The biggest problem i have, is what to reaserch ahah, i mean googling "how to make a webcam program with java" or "how to integrade a live webcam feed into a JFrame java program" does not turn up many resualts, and im sure there is more technical terms i could use up to serve me some much better resualts. haha, i will keep you up to date with thy progress.

    Check out JMF (Java Media Framework). Note that it's not part of the standard JDK and you will have to download it separately.
    JMF 2.1.1e Software

    Also note that according to mindprod.com
    It is stagnant, scheduled to be replaced by JMC (Java Media Components) in Java 1.7.
