VB6 - Capturing from webcam to PictureBox for analyzing image

P: 180
Hi people.

I am trying to analyze images from a camera connected to my computer. To do this, I need each captured frame from the camera to be put in a PictureBox.

I have found a project by other people called 'MouseCam' in VB6. It is supposed to let you control the mouse by waving your hand in front of a camera, which I thought I'd be able to use for my purpose. But I can't get their program to work AT ALL for me.

So what I need to know is how to connect to a video capture device, and for the frames to end up in a PictureBox, in a way that I can access the colour of each of the pixels.
(In other words, it must not just overlay it on top of the PictureBox!)

MouseCam is commented a lot but in Spanish, which I don't understand, and I've been using Google Translate to translate some of the comments (so it's not perfect English!).
(I attached this partly-translated version)
But as I said, the program doesn't work for me.

So if someone reckons they can get it to work and can explain HOW it works to me, that would be great.

Or if they know how to do this without using the MouseCam program, I'd be very grateful to hear how.

I've been trying to do this for many months now and it's really annoying me and holding up my projects, not being able to do this.
