ScriptCam is a popular JQuery plugin to manipulate webcams. Take snapshots, detect movement, colors, QR and barcodes, record videoclips and organize videochats.

Impress your clients and visitors with this multi-language and fully customizable library.

A WORD OF WARNING. As you all know, support for Flash is slowly fading out. Some browsers are even blocking the Flash plugin, making it difficult for ScriptCam to run. The current version (1.6.0) has come to the end of its life and will be replaced with a Flash-less version in the near future. ScriptCam support for video recording and video conferencing will end on the First of June 2016. All other functionalities will continue to work as normal, even when the new ScriptCam version is released.

Take snapshots

Let your visitors use their webcam to take pictures, or upload existing images.

Images are encoded in BASE64 format for easy form submission to a server side script language (like PHP) or usage as HTML5 "data:image" source.

Record videoclips

Extend your website functionality by letting your users record videos with their webcam.

Videos are encoded in MPEG4 H.264 AAC format, which means they are playable on virtually every platform, including smartphones running iOS (iPhone, iPad) and Android.

The resulting videoclips are offered as downloadable files and/or are transported to your Amazon S3 bucket or to your server using the FTP protocol. Video thumbnails and animated gifs are included!

Support needed?

ScriptCam is free, but technical support is only available for commercial users.

USING LINUX OR SOLARIS? Adobe stopped developing Flash Player for these platforms, but ScriptCam will work if you use the Chrome browser.
