interfacing webcam

You can use windws' own dll file 'avicap32.dll' which deals with all iamging devices connected to pc. I have used it with VB. It has a simple commands to initialise, capture and stop functions. This can be available at

Just search on it else I have only VB codes for Webcam Application.

webcam visual c++

You can use OpenCV library with VC++ and do a lot of stuff - capture from webcam, avi files ,etc and get each frame as an Image. Its a very good library and very easy to work with.
Try openCV at www.opencv.org
