This is the closest to the correct forum category I could find... Ok, I am using a logitech webcamp pro 4000. What I would like to know is, is there any library out there that I can use to interface to a webcam (or this model in particular) from a c++ program such that I can grab the image data? thanks, coderunner

I''m not 100% but I think what you''re after is to use TWAIN to access the camera. Google should give you plenty of info on it. You may also require libjpeg to decompress the images from the camera, or of course some other library if it transfers the images in a different format. If you get lucky it may even transfer them as raw bitmaps.

You can also use the DirectShow API if you''re programming under Windows.
