    I recently purchased an EasyCAP USB device to input video from a camera onto my Macs (an 2.4Ghz Intel Core 2 and an older G4 PBook- both still running 10.5.x).

    I'm able to use VideoGlide to see the video just fine, but am wondering if there's any way to use the live footage in other programs as well- ie, as a Quicktime video capture.

    Ultimately, I'd love to be able to use it in any stop motion program, need it be FrameThief, iStopMotion, Dragon, or any other.


    Is there a way, or will I basically be forced to purchase a FireWire device that does the same basic thing, but costs $100+ more.


    Thank you for your help.

    If the camera supports the USB Video Class standard then you should just be able to select it as input in the Quicktime preferences.
