About Dynamic Webcam SDK

Capture images and video stream from Webcams.

Dynamic Webcam SDK is a browser plug-in which enables users to acquire an image from a webcam, edit and then save it to a database, web server or local disk. Also, it can capture a live video stream in a container and grab a snapshot to be exported to a file. The library is based on the DirectShow API and works with all USB video device class (UVC) and WIA compatible webcams. Computers with Windows XP SP2 and later have UVC support built in, which allows for easy interconnectivity between webcams and computers.

Dynamic Webcam SDK comes in two editions for different browsers. ActiveX Edition supports Internet Explorer. Plugin Edition supports Firefox, Chrome, Safari and Opera.
