    Backup cam + Road runner help

    Hey all, I have a 3com home connect USB webcam I plan to use as a backup cam. I am using Road Runner front end. For some reason, I can't get the Winamp TV plugin to reconize my camera.

    In the Video tab, it sees the driver for it. Then, when I go to "Add Manually" my camera, in the "Other inputs" drop down menu, all that shows is "Default". For some reason, it's not seeing my camera. All drivers are installed correctly along with Road Runner and Winamp and plugins.

    Any suggestions? Also, I don't know what "WDM" means in the FAQ on this subject. What's it mean to have a "WDM Webcam"?

    Alright, for some reason. Just playing around, I opened Road Runner and hit TV and it works. Odd. Thanks anyways, guys.

    WDM means "Windows Driver Model", it's the native type of drivers used by Windows 2k/XP.

    for some reason though FrodoCam slows the frame rate from 25+ to less than 10fps @ 640x480.

    Other than that and the fact it doesn't record or capture its perfect

    not to hijack the thread, but topic is similar

    does anyone know of a camera app that has no UI? just a single window for the camera video and no buttons?
    options configured through a rightclick
