Hi John,
I was using an Apple iSight recently on Linux and trying to get the  
video into pdp. What I ended up doing was using vloopback (http:// 
and dc1394_vloopback (one of the libdc1394 sample programs: http:// 
sourceforge.net/projects/libdc1394) and from there was able to pick  
up the video using pdp_v4l.
