I am looking for someone to improve on a java applet that automatically updates a live webcam image (JPG) at a specified
interval. There are many existing java applets that already do this. The one that I am most familiar with can be easily downloaded near the bottom of the page at:

(Capture Client 1.2.7 class file)
I would like a java applet that works just like this one, except for a couple of additions:
1) I would like to be able to customize the splash screen image that displays while the applet is loading.
2) I would like to make the applet as efficient as possible (to load as quickly as possible) and exploit any new improvements in the java plug-in while being backwards compatible with older versions of the plug-in.
