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?

    Sure, put it on CPAN, if you have tested it, and are sure it works with all of the different possible setups. Otherwise, just post it here in the snippets, or code sections.
