If I was going to try to capture video using VB, I would look for an ActiveX control that I could drop on a form to do the video capture. I know there's a variety of controls available to access cameras, scanners, barcodes, etc.
I'm sure they range from free to expensive depending on your needs. Here's a link to a commercial one that cost $30 and another for $178.
If you search around you might be able to find some freeware. I never did what you are attempting so I can't give you a specific recommendation.
