Can't be done. PHP runs server side, while most webcams work at the client's side :)

Try something else, like java(script), ajax, etc, i.e. stuff that works client side.

I believe flash has features for using the client's webcam and microphone.

Yes, you can do it either with a Java applet or Flash movie,

Capturing the images directly from Web Cam through PHP designed Website is always a thrilling dream for me too. But thanks for your info, that it can't be done as PHP runs server side. I think Java Script can solve the issue to capturing image through web Cam.

Javascript doesn't provide any functions to interact with devices apart from the keyboard and mouse. So plugins like Flash are your best bet for the moment.
Who knows, maybe in HTML6 there will be a way. ;)
