The Java Media Framework (JMF) is worth a look:http://java.sun.com/products/java-media/jmf/
. It can be used to capture
still images and video clips. It's fairly easy to use, and I've seen it
working with Philips and Creative USB webcams.
I use the JMF to drive my Lundycam website athttp://www.sgurr.co.uk/lundycam/
This site has some JMF programming examples:http://www.mutong.com/fischer/java/usbcam/
