I'm glad cheese works for you! I'm afraid I can't help wit hteh coding though. Why not start a new sourceforge project and look on other design/coding forums

Me too got the exact problem.
I tried in JMSTUDIO, It also shows the grids and lines when I try to capture.
But my web cam is working fine with cheese.

I doubt the video capturing format in JMSTUDIO,
I am getting RGB and YUV as options.

Is there some thing to do with the bit rate and frame rate??

can any one help on this please???

Take a look at these Processing libraries:


Look at:

GSVideo - a Java wrapper for GStreamer.

jmcvideo - JMC is a newer Java media framework, part of something called JavaFX, which supposedly doesn't suck as bad as JMF.

OpenCV - a java wrapper for the OpenCV computer vision library
