Display pic from system webcam in the android emulator

Postby krupadevi » Tue Feb 24, 2009 10:28 pm

A lone system with a PC webcam is available, a picture is taken using this webcam.
I am trying to display this taken picture onto the display of the android emulator running on the same system.
It would be really helpful if someone can share ideas on how to establish some connection between this webcam and emulator both running on the same machine. Thanks in advance.

According to google:

Emulator Limitations

In this release, the limitations of the emulator include:

* No support for placing or receiving actual phone calls. You can simulate phone calls (placed and received) through the emulator console, however.
* No support for USB connections
* No support for camera/video capture (input).

I dont think it is possible right now
