Is it possible using JavaScript and/or PHP or any other language, whether a user of my web site has a webcam attached to his PC and whether they have audio output device (speakers, head phones etc) and audio input device for example mike

Any help or guidance on this matter would be highly appreciated.  

Thanks for your help


I've never actually tried doing this. I can pretty much confirm you can not do it directly through a PHP/Javascript web served page. You would probably need to develop some sort of ActiveX control that the user would need to agree to run.

In fact i'd be almost 100% sure that it would need to work that way.
