...which webcam are you using? Is it firewire or usb? I have had no
problems using an iBot, which is a firewire camera...also no problems
with any other firewire video input devices (ie. dazzle)...you may want
to try [pix_videoDarwin], but that should be the same as [pix_video]
(due to object inheritance)...
...as far as set up and drivers and such, it's all handled
automagically by quicktime, so don't worry about that...
