I meant a external video camera

Ok, this is what you need :

The Video library plays movie files and captures video data from a camera. Video can be captured from USB Cameras, IEEE 1394 (Firewire) Cameras, or Video Cards with composite or S-video input devices connected to the computer.

And also you have this great tutorial made by Daniel Shiffman on the Processing website (I encourage you to check other tutorials) :

I will have a external camera with its antenna somewhere else not next to me or my PC. Can I capture its video flow as well ? Like Debut Video Capture

How do you connect to the wireless camera?

With RC 832 Receiver. I connect it to my PC’s usb port via a 3 way Red Yellow White cable @josephh

To see if your camera is recognized, you can see the output of this line (with the video library imported) :
