Makes sense now.
So I guess I can't use the runloop function you wrote but will re-implement it in my code for the usb cams and will also test yours with my firewire cams (PGR and Sony).
This makes a lot more sense now..

Yes, it's a little goofy that the runloop function is only available for firewire cameras. If you are able to get a runloop working with USB cameras, it would be interesting to experiment with generalizing that support to both USB and firewire in libdc1394.

That would involve hoisting that method out of the macosx backend as a wrapper and creating platform-specific methods for it in both "macosx" and "usb".
