I'm glad that the Quickcam for Win is finally shipping, hope to get mine soon.

If the developers are listening I'd like to pose the question of what the
effort is for an installable driver for various camera types (ie: Snappy)?
I'm sure that there are a few of us willing to help in anyway possible.

One of the questions is the method of loading such a 'patch' or driver or
whatever we want to call it. I would prefer some form of interprocess
communicatons (IPC) which I don't know if Win3 can handle too well. (the curse
of spending all my time in the unix world). That would allow the ability to
test/ship with the standard driver and possibly a null driver for those of
us without cameras and then we could pass around a quickcam driver, etc.

As an aside, could someone please post the policy of releasing the source
code so I'll know if I'll ever be able to hack some 'interesting' changes to
the product?

thanks
