I have a movie camera that streams to by PC. I am looking for a bit of software that will let me display the video as it streams but will also capture stills as jpgs. I have a bit of software at the mo called 'Presto! Mr. Photo'. the trouble with this is that the camera only outputs a resolution of 640x480 and i want this to be expanded to fill the screen better, this software does not allow me to increase the output size.
Any ideas on a good bit of software?

cheers

IIRC Yawcam can do that easily:

Unless you have a High Definition camera and can set it higher than 640x480 then sizing up is just going to give you a pixilated image anyway.

640x480 is your video size.

Even frames from my Hi Def camera are not great compared to Digital Photos.
