Processing-0118, windows 2000.

Not sure if it's me doing something wrong, or a Processing bug.

The Video library page says that as of 0116 it's possible to export
programs that use the video library. I'm trying to export an application
that uses a webcam, just the standard example "Capture" program. It works
fine from within processing, but if I try to use Export or Export
Application I get:

Perhaps you wanted the overloaded version "Capture();" instead?

Additional Comment #1 From fry 2006-10-07 06:43
this is actually because the example is called "Capture", which conflicts
with the "Capture" class that it uses. the example just needs to be
renamed. re-filing this one with casey so we can fix it for the next release.

The example has been renamed "Using Capture". It's fixed online and I'll
make a new examples.zip before the next release to add it to the distribution.
