    Yuppers. That's a DirectX/DirectShow device.

    There's hundreds of samples that a google search will turn up. That was the most promising first-page sample from a search like: +visual-basic +directshow +camera +source-code

    The process is identical. It's all dotNet.

    Did you see the source code that will compile and show a webcam display on the screen, doing exactly what you asked, in visual basic, at the top of the link I posted? http://www.codeproject.com/KB/audio-...ctShowNET.aspx

    What _specifically_ is lacking in that example?

    firstly, it the code isnt compatible with vb 2008, secondly i cant get the program to run, thirdly it requires a directshaw thing programmer fourth, to get the programmer i need to download 1.33gb of editor, and i dont have that amount of data usage with our plan (welcome to the _hole_; New Zealand)
