    Interfaceing with a webcam

    Hallo,

    I have been asked to look into creating a small program that captures input from the web camera. The only thing it needs to do is to display the image on the screen, and to be able to take snapshots. It does not need to be fast or efficient.

    So I was wondering if anyone had any experience with this and maybe could recommend a library or something that I could look into? It does not really matter to much want platform it is for, but I would prefer windows, as that is what I have the most experience with.

    Thanks
