Is there a JavaScript library or a different 3rd party library or package (in Java, Ruby, or Python) which can access a WebCam (in order to record video or sound) on computer running OS X or Windows?

JavaScript is not going to do it.

You would have to look at applets, flash, flex, or silverlight.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
