Image Capture From Webcams using the Java Media Framework API


Java Media Framework (JMF) API 1.0 was intended to enable the playback of audio, video, and other time-based media from Java technology applets and applications. Version 2.0 added the ability to capture, stream, and transcode multiple media formats. This article shows how the JMF API can be used to capture single images from a standard webcam.

In addition to the standard Java Development Kit (JDK), a separate, platform-specific performance pack is required for the JMF API. (See the for further details.) Due to the required support for hardware, the example code in this article was developed and tested on the Microsoft Windows platform using a Logitech USB Webcam.
