i would like to access the flow of a DV camcorder, more likely on a firewire ieee1394 bus.
i m not sure there are standard ways of doing this.

i would like to use it"as a webcam", ie to geet live images and process them as they arrive.

i dont think it will be recognized as a vfw webcam.

i dont think i ll be able to access every frame easily without having to deal with the compressed video flow.

i m not sure i can do it without DShow.

i would need lowest possible latency, which is not the same as fps, and i think there is an unbreakable latency barrier since the cam buffers many frames to compress them, BEFORE sending them trough the bus.

i would like to know if some of you know of hires semiprofessional ccd video devices (not necessarily camcorders), maybe on other buses, and how much does it cost.

what do you guys know about it?

thank you very much in advance.
