    Sarxos looks like a good API. It's active and there is a sample for Transcoding to a h264 stream you could pretty much just copy. It's probably worth while checking out Javacv as well.

    What APIs are available for getting a stream from the webcam?
    Can you write a program that will write to a stream that goes out through a socket connection?
    Can the output from the webcam be sent through that stream?
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
