Video capture from webcam on Mac?

Is there a cross-platform solution for video capture from a webcam?

I am aware of the Win32 videocapture library, but am unaware of how to
accomplish the same functionality on the Mac side.

Thanks in advance.

You could try and make OpenCV work - it has a part called anygui that
allows that, and has python-bindings.

Alternatively, you could utilize the ToxicFramework from pyobjc, when
running on a mac.
