Capturing Audio and Video with RevRun

Video and Audio from within REV is one of the easier things I have 
encountered using REV. I was even able to access the video controls for 
an iSight camera which apple says is not meant to do and REV does it 

I use all of the REV builtin video controls and they access the USB 
camera just fine. There are a couple of sample stacks that do the 
videograbber stuff and are good examples of good coding as well.

I did not see wether it relies on Quicktime or not or on Macintosh or 
not. Sorry. If I have time I will try my stack out in Virtual PC on my 
Mac. That may sound like cheating but actually if I can get it to work 
in Virtual PC then you should have no problems because Virtual PC has 
issues with loading drivers and sharing usb devices with the Mac. I 
will do this if I have time this week.
