No problem. Thanks though. I found a command line app called snapz that takes a pic using the current webcam on the system. Works great so far.

vidcap.dll and vdscap.dll seem like two different dll files to me.

Hey LiquidCode,

I also tried snapz, but if you have no webcam attached it crashes Sad I was also looking for something to capture a snapshot from Webcam. VIDCAP.DLL from Tommy works, but when it starts it keeps opening my webcam console / settings (tried with different computer/webcam brands) and waits for me to close that panel to start showing the stream. Which is not pratical.

Well, snapz also doesn't work if the webcam is internal (i.e. a netbook or laptop)

Good question...I was able to get vidcap to work nicely. The latest version allows me to select which source to capture. I'm happy with it so far.
