I know this probably isn't much help but. I have found many webcam games on the internet that use flash to run so I am guessing somewhere in flash it allows you to access a users webcam I've never seen a browser based webcam application using anything other then flash.

I think I've seen it done in Java but I could be wrong. Either way: flash is the best way to go.

If you've ever noticed in the settings for flash objects, there is a tab which allows you to change settings for Webcam access by the flash object, implying that Flash has a way of communicating with a Webcam (and a microphone too.. thats there too in the settings page).

There are 2 choices in general: JAVA and FLASH;
Both of them have pros and cons;
Here's the list:

JAVA
pros:
the serverside requires no proprietary software. You can code it yourself.
all the software needed to build the framework is free.

cons:
long time spent in development
slow streaming speed and quality
compatibility issues
clients need JRE.

FLASH:
pros:
ultra-fast development (a video-audio chat system can be made in 1 to 5 hours, depending on the options you chose)
fast speed and high quality when streaming
Wide compatibility (most people have flash player instaled)
easy integration with php for server side and javascript for clientside

cons:
You must use either FLASH 7 or 8 (these work best) and they cost money;
The server side needs Flash Media Server that costs... A LOT (there's a freeware alternative, so this in not such a big problem)
some bandwidth issues (usually, high quality in flash player demands broadband connections, but again, this isn't such a big issue).

But in my expertise, Flash is the way to go (once upon a time I did a flash video-chat system and it all went fast and clean; trying to do it in java took me 2 weeks of docs and trial & error processes. I never finished the java system Laughing )

Cheers!
PS: docs for flash are easy to find, and I'll gladly help you on my free time.

Live video chat is a serious challenge but Flash would be the way to go.
