some drawbacks regarding Captifier: After a lot of debugging, testing and trying workarounds I finally read that GDK (and thus GTK+)  is not thread-aware under Win32 as it is under Linux. Great, I found that out, too – the hard way ;)
I’m currently evaluating two alternative strategies to overcome the issue: Interthread-messaging to announce frames to display or integrating the grabber thread in the main thread… The decision will depend on the camera interfaces that are planned to be integrated sooner or later…
