In order for you to do webcam image capture, you need to send a component to the browser, you can't do it in ASP.NET. You may think you can, but you'll find that your capture is happening on the server, not the client. You need to read a basic ASP.NET book to understand how it and the world wide web, work.

I told you it was impossible and it is. You can embed an ActiveX or other plugin type object in your ASP.NET website, but ASP.NET generates HTML and javascript, and neither of those can control a webcam. I googled and just found lots of people who also don't understand how the internet works, asking the same question. You need to write this in flash, or in ActiveX, or something else. ASP.NET can't do it, your code runs on the server.
