Webcam screen capture - Macromedia Flash Flashcom

For our class project this year we are working on a flash com conference streaming program. Since we don't have the equipment to take a real screen capture and stream it we are going to use a webcam or mini DV. Although this will look horrible, it's a proof of concept and the only option we can see.

    Default Webcam screen capture

    For our class project this year we are working on a flash com conference
    streaming program. Since we don't have the equipment to take a real screen
    capture and stream it we are going to use a webcam or mini DV. Although this
    will look horrible, it's a proof of concept and the only option we can see.

    My question is, is there a way to control the feed from the camera so it's not
    sending a lot of information that will plug up the bandwidth. We're thinking
    of a still every couple of seconds but we're not sure of how to actually do
    this. Any suggestions are welcome.

    Maybe the Client.setBandwidthLimit() method is what you need to implement to
    avoid clogging your bandwidth. It allows you to set a limit to the number of
    bytes that are allowed to be uploaded and downloaded by a client. This is a
    server-side call.
