in thread Cross platform webcam-capturing?

thanks - even though maybe i should've made clear that i'm trying to access a cheapo-USB-webcam, and was kind of looking for a solution along the lines of:
use Device::Webcam; # pity this on doesn't exist my $wc = Device::Webcam->init('/dev/video/0', '800x600'); my $jpeg = $wc->capture( format => 'jpeg' );
hmmm....if i'd actually start a Device::Webcam, that does nothing more than wrap around vidcat on linux (v4l) systems, would that be worth putting on CPAN?
