To run Firewire video under XP, you need to set the videoMethod  
parameter in the RevInitializeVideoGrabber function to "DirectX". I  
don't believe that is listed in the documentation, but it is the  
correct setting. Make sure you have DirectX installed.

So the first call needs to be something like:

revInitializeVideoGrabber the short name of this stack, "DirectX",the  
rect of this stack

Hope that helps.
