Re: Mara

The Greyscale-Codec is not working with the color-quickcam, which is uses a
different technique to generate greyscale. That's why people who prefer b/w
freeware version of cu should go with the simpler and working b/w quickcam.

You can find info about this in a faq at Whitepine Software.
