Record a still image from IP Camera Viewer

I am building a project (Ignition 7.7.8 ) for a tablet computer to be used for on-site maintenance. I would like to be able to take pictures of the devices being worked on so that a visual history can be stored along with the text based maintenance history.

I finally got my webcam to stream via VLC to the Ignition IP Camera Viewer after reading this post:

Is it possible to record a still image from the video stream in the IP Camera Viewer component?

bufferedImage = system.print.createImage(event.source.parent.getComponent("IP Camera Viewer"))
