Adobe Flex/AIR Photo Booth Software
I hope everyone is doing well.
Is it possible to build a Photo Booth software like
etc. using Adobe Flex/AIR ?
I know that we can build desktop applications using Flex/AIR. But I have a very little experience in building desktop applications. Most of the times I had worked on web applications. The Photo Booth software demands to detect digital camera connected to computer/Laptop and then work on the basis of what camera captures. It is like creating a web application that works with media server and
use computer/laptop webcam. Please guide me how can I start or plan for this software.

Lester, I hope you are doing good.
Thanks for responding, but I know this and done it many time. I guess I did not explained in detail. I want to detect any Digital camera connected through USB cable to the computer/laptop and then capture images/videos from computer/laptop that digital camera is capturing.
I hope you have checked the urls that I shared above. There is detailed information for the software.

Hi Varun, Flash has to depend on AIR framework or flash player for camera detection. The digital camera that have a functionality to present itself as web cam can only work with flash. The shared links have developed there software which work for specific digital cameras not all. Probably they have created drivers for those digital cams to present them as webcam. Drivers for digital cams cannot be created using actionscript.

It means it will require specific drivers as per the digital camera attached. Is there any thing that can solve this. I have not worked on desktop applications much.

You may require to create such application in language like C++ or JAVA which can interact with hardware. You will require an expert for writing such software. If somehow you are able to detect the digital camera and show it as webcam then flash player can read that and you can create the capturing application in the flash.

Bib thanks for the reply. I will try to detect camera and then show it as webcam, rest is very easy to do, if video starts displaying in video component.
