Firewire / 1394 Camera Capture Support

Hi Guys, I am an absolute beginner when it comes to Open Frameworks. The reason I am here is because I am working on a project using CCV which uses OpenCV and many other OpenFrameworks components. My issue however is that it is using an older version of OpenFrameworks and doesn’t seem to have any Firewire 1394 Camera support in the Gstreamer video libraries.

It appears that my version of CCV that I compiled on Ubuntu 12.10 supports Video4Linux and Video4Linux2 input but doesn’t attempt to detect Firewire cameras.

My question is, do newer versions of Openframework have support for Firewire Cameras? The cameras I am using are rather old but I have been able to get a video feed from them using Coriander in Ubuntu so I know they work. There seems to be a few addons from 2008 and 2009 from Pierre, a highly intelligent individual, but I am not sure of the current state of these. Is Firewire natively supported now in Openframeworks?
