If this is in the wrong forum please move!

The plan is to create a php form that will write to a MySQL database....nice and simple....


I would like to capture an image via a webcam and store that in a folder somewhere (local) and rename the file as a timestamp... This timestamp would also have to exist within the MySQL database to link the image to the correct record...

Has anyone got any recommendations on whats the best way to do it and also webcam software!

ok - i will re-phrase this

I'm looking to display streaming video on a html page....

Then once I click a capture button it will save the required frame as an image and store it in a folder on my pc. The filename must be a renamed as a timestamp - with this filename passed through to a php form.

This is internal on a stand alone pc....

any ideas - feel free to move it to a diff forum (i know its webcam related more than php)
