Hi All,

I want to develop an application to capture video from external device like webcam, video camera.
And compress them and save in the server machine and view to the users by streaming.

I think its better to use JMF to develop this application.(to capture video).
Video compression can be done by using third party java wrapper framework named JAVE. http://www.sauronsoftware.it/projects/jave/manual.php

But my problem is...

1. Once user attach web cam or video camera, how JMF recognize that device ?
2. I would not like to use JMF Registry to register the devices because I cannot force to users to do that.

Can anyone help ??

Thanks in advance,
Dilan.
