I just deleted your recent duplicate of this post. We strongly discourage multiple posts of the same question here at the Ranch. Please don't do it.

As to your question, it would help if you supplied more information about what you were trying to do, but I'll tell you, in general, that Java doesn't capture video frames. There's nothing in the standard API for doing video capture as this term is normally used.

The Java Media Framework does, apparently, include some video capture features in the 2.0 release, although I don't know details. There's tons of documentation on the JMF web site linked above.

I'm going to move this question to our "Other Java APIs" forum, where JMF questions belong.
