I dunno, but I'd guess a google of "YOUR_PROGRAMMING_LANGUAGE_HERE webcam" or "YOUR_PROGRAMMING_LANGUAGE_HERE connect to webcam" will give you some good insight.

I believe you want to look into capturing an image from a Twain compliant device. At least that'd probably be the easiest way of going about it.

If you can find it at a bookstore, I believe Game Programming Gems Vol 6 has a chapter about webcams. I believe they discuss algorithms to detect movement and such but you'll be able to find out how they get the webcam stream from their source.
