This is a recompile of my web camera example program using the “video for windows” library, and build in capturing to avi file.
If you need an encoder, try using “Windows Media Video 9 VCM”…

This is using VFW and the function capGetDriverDescription() only retrieves driver information like “Microsoft WDM Image Capture (Win32)”. This function did work fine for years back, but today all cameras is WDM cameras, and this means only one driver reply.
For support of more than one camera, then a directshow implementation must be made instead.

This little example is a small class to demonstrate the win32 calls for accessing your web camera

VCL Component

This time it took a little bit longer but download it here below, or go to my download page (you can find it on top of my page).
