Old B/W Parallel Quickcam      2003.06.28 @ 12:40:50 AM
I have plugged in an old parallel quickcam just for the fun of it.

It works!

I don't know if I can get this to work with V4L, but it was very easy to take shots with qcread

And a two-line bash script to make it even easier:

name=shot`date +%y%m%d-%H%M%S`.jpg
/usr/bin/qcread > ~/$name ; xv ~/$name &
