I saw the same as Andrew with my USB connected Kodak DVC 300. I could see local video just fine but would get "unsupported video" error messages. However I could use it through SoftCam ( The little softcam logo stays in the video window, which means its doing a realtime video format translation on the fly. So SoftCam is evidently translating what the Kodak sends and what CU expects.

I can get SoftCam to do the same for my ATI capture card IF, in the SoftCam options I select the ATI card as my default background and put some overlay on top of the live video (I use a heart). SoftCam doesn't seem to want to translate the ATI format on the fly when you just select the ATI as your live video source (without an overlay).

The Cornell verison only supports limited number of video devices. Your
Kodak Camera may not be on the list. Check the cornell web site,
As added info, I was told that the only difference between White Pine's
version 2.1.1 and their 2.1.2 was the added code to support the Kodak
camera. In effect, 2.1.2 was a custom release for Kodak. If that is true,
then I bet that Cornell never supported it.
