Sorry, I can't help you. Doesn't mean someone else on this list can't
though. Good luck.

(You might try finding a command-line tool that can do the job and use
python to script that. Or look for a C lib that does it and wrap
that...)

You can try http://videocapture.sourceforge.net. The web page focuses on
USB webcams, but if it's using a standard XP interface (like DirectShow or
WIA), there's a good chance it will drive your 1394 camera as well.
