Web Cam, Notification of Broadcast

P: n/a
Ray
Does anyone know if there is a notification broadcast, or alternatively a
message that can be sent to the system, that would inform me that a web
camera attached to the local computer was in use, or not?

Thanks,
Ray

Depends on which webcam (off-topic), which OS (off-topic). If you are using
USB (off-topic) your USB-driver should be notified (off-topic) and depending
on your OS (off-topic) your application can/will/can't/won't be notified.

My advice:

* Suply details.
* Find appropriate newsgroup
* Try again.

Dandelion,
Thanks for responding. Well I am using VB6 for my app. And found that I
am unable to get a True notification if the web cam is in use without a
(Video Source) window popping up, the False works fine.
It was suggested to try VC group to find the answer.

OS - Windows XP Home and Pro
Web Cam - USB
I just need a (true/false) for my VB6 application with out the select video
source window coming up.

Any help or information would be greatly appreciated.
