Web cams work for Skype, but not for my vb or c# code, why? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Many times, using different approaches, I have written code to use a webcam to display video and then capture an image.  Sometimes... my code displays just a black screen or a white screen or nothing at all.  Thinking that a hardware issue might exist I then open Skype or some other application and the camera works.  How can I use the same image capture tech as what Skype is using?
