Note: This trick only works in Webkit based browsers (e.g. Safari and OmniWeb amongst others)
A long time ago I visited a website where they were using my iSight camera, recording me, and showing on their site.
I remembered that I had seen the code and it was pretty simple, so now I decided to test it here. If you have a mac with an iSight camera, probably you can watch yourself there.
After some searches, I found some really cool sites and tutorials, explaining how it works and how to do it, below there are a list with few of them:
The code is pretty simple:
<object classid="clsid:02BF25D5-8C17-4B23-BC80-D3488ABDDC6B" width="200" height="150" codebase="http://www.apple.com/qtactivex/qtplugin.cab">
<param name="src" VALUE="umovie.mov"/>
<param name="autoplay" VALUE="true"/>
<param name="controller" VALUE="false"/>
<embed src="umovie.mov" width="200" height="150" autoplay="true" controller="false" pluginspage="http://www.apple.com/quicktime/download/"/>
All you have to do is add that code and use a .mov file (you can download it below).
