macam 0.8.3

by Oliver -

Kudos to Matthias Krauss for releasing a patch to macam 0.8.3 so that more cameras are supported now and that it works with Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger. macam is a nice open source project to provide QuickTime Image Capture Components for cheap USB webcams which had unfortunately fallen into some state of disrepair the last couple of years. Used to work with iStopMotion (where we used it to connect with the camera in the Lego Moviemaker set) but we haven't tested it in a while. It seems to pick up momentum again as you can see from the news on the macam project page.
