multiple webcam (2) to use simultaneously -

i have 2 usb webcams on my mac and i want them to grab video at the same time.

jit.qt.grab can recognize both webcams but when i have 2 jit.qt.grab and try to ‘open’ them both, i get an error -536870164 setting vdig compression type message.

i looked for the past entries and i kind of got the impression that it might be because of the camera drivers.

i’m asking: might i be doing something wrong with the patch? is using 2 qt.grab the right solution or is there another one? if this is a driver problem, is there a way out?
