1. I don't think it supports 8-bit palletized format - it's strictly 24-bit.

2. There is no Video for Windows capture driver, a requirement.

3. (2) is probably because... it takes several MINUTES to acquire an image
from SNAPPY. (The name is somewhat of a misnomer.) <significant
understandment mode: ON> This results in a non-optimal frame rate for
video conferencing.
