     This is a control I ported from a Visual Basic 6 project which will connect to a webcam and return System.Drawing.Image every x milliseconds. The control returns the image in the ImageCaptured Event. In the example, I show how to configure everything and how to display the image on the screen. It seems to run about 15 frames per second at the fastest, I think because of the overhead of converting to System.Drawing.Image. Assumes you have a webcamera attached and running on your computer. If you have more than one camera source, it should pick the first camera in the source list. There is a memory leak somewhere after the image is captured. I have tried everything I can think of, but I can't find the leak or how to fix it. I would REALLY appreciate any suggestions or comments on how to fix this. Thanx.

For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
