I am working on a system that uses two webcams to track an object's position in
3D space. I havn't been able to find any Video for Windows libraries for D. Does
anyone know of a binding in existance for windows or linux that could help get a
webcam's image into the software?

Thanks,

I was actually working on Titan today.. But - i was thinking about the 3D interface, and I suppose I get side-tracked... I actually intend on implimenting a new human interface system into the OS... I suppose I want the OS to not be designed only for the keyboard and mouse, but for anything... More dimensions perhaps. But - Fear NOT! Titan and Terra are actually getting some attention this holiday, and should throughout december. Thanks, Trevor Parscal

On Windows, I know that both VfW and DirectShow can be used to capture webcam images. I know it's not what you're after, but here's a reference for the former: http://tinyurl.com/863rp. And here's a (C++) sample for the latter: http://www.codeproject.com/audio/DXCapture.asp
