Thanks for the info ..... I noticed the same that I have to use some client side thing to access the hardware , suppose I program a flash actionscript to access the camera then can you please guide me that how I can redirect that stream to the specified user through php ...... I think I am making myself clear.
Example : We both are chatting through example.com you logged in through demo1 username and I logged in through demo2 username then actionscript takes my webcam stream then what it has to do , to redirect that stream to your side through the example.com website so that you can see me .... the same has to be done from your side so that I can see you.
Thanks in advance.
Really excited with your response.
As for how you'd direct that stream to the specific user, well, I haven't done it before so I'd have to figure it out first. My suggestion though would be to find an open source library (there's a lot for this) and check how they're doing it. Don't copy them but just understand the logic.
