The only frame grabber I'm aware of is the Snappy. I believe there's
Win3.1 software that comes with it. Any frame grabber you get will
probably require specific drivers (and software) for it to work as
advertised. I know the earlier Snappy's don't support Video for Windows
so using the standard APIs (ie: with Vidcap32 or another generic capture
program) probably won't work. You can always grab CU-Doodle
( I believe) and see what
