Command-Line iSight Tool

July 3, 2005

A new utility, isightcapture, is a small command-line program to grab frames from an attached FireWire iSight camera. It also has built-in sizing and formatting options. It’s a great tool for developers or users who are mildly familier with the Unix environment, and have a need to grab images from an iSight. It could also be built into a webcam application, a script to upload periodic captures to a webserver, or a similar project. Check it out!
