    Can anyone tell me that is there any way to work with web cam through ASP sites. I want to know about it.
    I have built an chat through ASP which will help online visitors to chat, now i want an option through which if any user have web cam can make his presence through it. Can also see who is with web cam and can also see the other member.

    This can be just like yahoo chat.

    Any one help on the topic.

    Well, you'll need to use some sort of a media platform that supports streaming. That means that you can use a Windows Media server platform which supports streaming or you can use Flash. Flash is a popular choice for this kind of thing.

    However ASP isn't really a major factor in such applications, aside from possibly dynamically checking which webcam users are online and displaying their corresponding applets.

    Regards :)

    I will second yugolancer's answer. Microsoft recently released silverlight as their competition for flash (didn't go so well) and you may want to explore that option (version 2 is due out soon). However, Flash is more universal, here is an old tutorial about using the webcam through flash: http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/326194
