I haven't but I have looked into it a bit. Be aware that using video
capture with QuickTime on Windows is not fun. Very few (if any?)
cameras will work with QuickTime on Windows. One interesting thing
to note is that QuickTime Pro for Mac supports video capture but not
QuickTime Pro for Windows. It has to do with the technology that QT
uses for video capture.
You can look at http://www.vdig.com/WinVDIG/index.html if you really
need to use QT capture on Windows.
If you end up using VFW (I think directx works as well but I don't
think it is documented) with the video grabber then you may have to
support QT/MCI playback for Windows. This isn't too bad if you
create a wrapper library to branch between using the built-in player
or the equivalent MCI commands.
