Hi Rasmus and Others, Thanks for your info I will look into those link you have provided.
How do you think yahoo is able to do it so beautifully. When i click web cam in Yahoo Chat it opens a pop up window and says connecting to the server and then it shows up web cam picture and it is pretty good. Can I achieve something like that in my web site.
