this isn't really for multimedia stuff I think, but there is one 
solution provided by Emgu CV http://www.emgu.com (C# wrapper for 
OpenCV). You can access the webcam and capture the video or only one 
frame, but I don't know if it is really the solution you are looking for.

Here is the example in the wiki: 
I have tested it under Arch Linux and it worked without any problems. I 
captured the live stream and did some first effects to it, like those 
effects in cheese from Gnome.
