Whenever I was asked about the possibility of Flash could take a picture of an IP camera and relay to Flash Media Server. Until recententemente, could not answer until I took a job that required this functionality .
Some important details that we need to keep in mind:
- Flash Player only supports USB cameras.
- IP Cameras usually has its own embedded server is not possible to use Flash Player “inside”.
Because Flash Player can not get the image of a camera ip, the solution I found was to use other software that can connect the camera ip and generate a virtual driver (in this case, I used the Webcam 7 ), so Flash Player can recognize and get the image of ip camera
