It would be nice if I could get the openCV camera frame capture stuff to work. I tried incorporating the Vizard (vizcapture) function into squares using the Vizard webcam capabilities and I have not found a means to convert the image from the vizcapture screen buffer into an IPLImage for openCV. I have tried a straight convert and also used to try and convert the images, but apparantly there was an error in OpenCV 1.0 when moving from a PIL or other image type to IPLImage.

I have grown tired of going the viz cam route and am back onto trying to get the OpenCV camera handler to work, so any ideas you have I will entertain. I'll try and play with drivers and stuff and let you know how it goes. I have more than one camera plugged in right now, I'll pull those and see if they're causing conflicts.
