Microsoft is kind of enough to have the Video for Windows API readily available and made easy to use.

I''m doing a lot of this kind of stuff at the moment for a research project. Another MS SDK that I found very useful is the MS Vision SDK, released by one of MS''s more famous research groups. Allows you to grab video from a camera at frame rate. Provides an MFC appwizard and so on. Well documented too. Supports quite a few different image formats. Haven''t tryed using it with OpenGL - my project involves computer vision more so than graphics.

If you want to do any image processing, btw, the Intel OpenCV library is very well-featured. Little short on documentation, but not too bad.
