Error occured

"An error occured while capturing the video image. The video capture will now be terminated. Object reference not set to an instance of an object."


I tried the downloadable C# project and that error shows whenever I try starting the webcam. I don't know what's wrong, but I doubt that there's a camera issue because I tried other approach for using webcam and it works. I wonder why this does not.

I'm having the same problem.  The webcam works with msn and skype but not with this library?  Any Ideas what is causing this problem?

This code just doesn't work on devices with more than one camera, I've given up and gone to other methods.
