Hi there. My custmomer has a small LAN and he asked me to
connect them also through a webcam, so, everytime I press a button,
the camera turns on at both sides (the two computers) and when
conversation comes to end, you just click on another button and pc
goes to sleep or goes back to main menu... Any idea ? thanx in
At a minimum you would need Flash media server (FMS) . FMS
uses a form of actionscript as well. So you need to script an app
for that as well as the flash clients. There's probably some
existing code in the demo/samples that you could adapt, but it
would require some work there. Search in Adobe.com for FMS.
Also to turn on webcams, I believe you need to show the
settings panel from actionscript (or it would happen automatically
each time you try to use the webcam) and get the consent of the
client at each end.
For a small LAN it seems like a lot of work and (if using
FMS, expense - there is an open source option, but it requires java
programming I think).
