Can I capture video input from a video camera using Java?

Yes, you can use the capture functionality in the Java Media Framework (JMF) to capture a video stream from an attached video camera.

For more information, please refer to the JMF spec and documentation linked to from: java.sun.com/products/java-media/jmf

Be sure you refer to the Java Media Framework API Guide, especially the Capturing Time-Based Media with JMF section.
