Hey guys i have to make a software for windows OS which recognises any external webcam and using the plug and play service (just like skype and gtalk) it accesses that webcam without any installation of any external software. I am a newbie in this kind of hardware accessing. I know the above mentioned languages. Tell me about the resources that i need to study.
Hope you guys will respond quickly.

You have the opencv labrary and also you have the videoInput Library. They are very easy to use.

PLease think about it again:
You do not need to know how the webcam is installed. You just need to ask the OS for a camera and use that device.
 
Now please think about connecting to a USB device.

Hello,
 
Easy way of webcam access is to use DirectShow.
For C++ implementation see AMCap[^] example in SDK.
C# implementation you can find in my article: Pure .NET DirectShow Filters in C#[^] See sample applications in there.
 
Regards,
Maxim.
