Activate webcam?

How do I activate user’s webcam to capture image?

If it’s just an image your after, you can use the picture uploader. That will prompt the user (browse, take photo etc.) On the device they’re using.

When I used image uploader, it works for mobile. But for laptop/pc, it doesn’t activate webcam, it just asks for the image file.

i think this is normally device specific, so you’re going to need something like a plugin, chrome extension etc. Clicking on file upload on a tablet or phone will give options for browsing or the camera. Generally on computers this will ask you to browse for files…

There is an ongoing project for something similar: Live Webcam/Video/Capture Card & Audio Recorder with Photo Function

Sorry I couldn’t be of more help, hopefully someone else can jump in and help.
