Problem with concurrent access

I'm not very comfortable with JMF yet as i'm a beginner. I'm building a sort of JMF security application that captures a frame every minute in order to check that nobody's breaking in my house.

This application works fine, but my problem is that I can't use my webcam anymore, as it's sort of "blocked" by my application. I was wondering if there was a way to capture frames without "blocking" webcam, because I would want to be able to use it when I'm home and I don't want to have to disable and enable my application each time I need my webcam.

Is there a way to prevent such an application from blocking my webcam?

Thank you.


PS: Sory for any english mistake, I tried to do my best, but I'm french.
