    Screen Capture Somehow

    I'm trying to create a little web app, to work in conjunction with Flash, that will take a screen capture of the Flash area of the Client Browser window and send it back to the server. I know this can be done with an ActiveX control, but it prompts the user to download and install, and that just defeats the purpose. Basically, is this possible without alerting the client. I basically have a few of the parts needed, but again, it prompts the user and I need to avoid that. Any ideas, anyone?

    1. Client/User is in charge of his/her computer.
    2. Your web site is a guest on client's computer that is given a certain space(browser window) to perform its function.
    3. Attempting to perform any functions outside the browser window without user consent is either impossible (real browsers) or unethical
