Thank you for the feedback. This is good to know, too. Simplicity is what I am looking for. As I mentioned before the RealBasic app I have tried is tied to QuickTime. I love QT but if it can be avoided as an add-on download that would help things quite a bit. I'll be getting more familiar with Rev over the next couple of weeks... hopefully enough that I can get used to the feel of the language. If you do get a chance to try it out I would appreciate the help but no worries if not. I used to use Virtual PC regularly on my Cube but I haven't had a chance to get back to working on a Mac for a long time now. :( I do remember the issues you mentioned and it would be a good thing to know.

Thanks again and it does help.

Peace,

Michael

Micheal,

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
great.

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.
