This code is based on code that Raymond Camden blogged. http://www.raymondcamden.com/index.cfm/2012/4/6/Face-detection-with-getUserMedia
It works in Chrome 21.0.1180.75 on PC. I have not tested any other browsers yet.
Chrome will ask you if it is ok for the web page to use your web camera. When you click yes is displays a live feed from your web camera.
Click on the "Say Cheese" button and it takes an image displays it on the web page and transmits it to a ColdFusion CFC. A CFM file will work just the same if you want to put the CF code on a CFM page instead.
The CFC then returns the name of the image that was written to the server.
Update 8/17/2012 One thing i also noticed is the JPG images are very large, about 200K.
In production i used Efflare's ImageCR to re-save the JPG and it brought it down to a much more appropriate 30K.
CFImage will probably clean it up also, but i like ImageCR better.
