Hi Guys,

I need to develop a website that must capture the camera of the user´s computer and show it on the site in real time. Should be for multiple users, like a video-conference

Is this possible with Javascript?

Thanks.

Fernando,
It's definitely possible as Google hangouts does it. A quick search gave this example of using HTML 5 APIs to access the camera. The user will of course have to agree to the prompt requesting access to the camera.

WebRTC is one technology to look into.
