A SNAPPY is a device which connects to your parallel port, just like a
quickcam does, and you can connect any standard video device to it, like a
VCR or a camcorder. It displays the output from the video device on the
screen and allows you to capture into a file what is displayed on the
screen. The display is in realtime, and if you use their software to put
the video on the screen, and then use CUDOODLE as your capture driver in
CU-SeeMe, you can transmit as if you had a video capture card or a quickcam.
