The webcam support in Tellico is a bit old. But if you successfully 
compiled it, make sure it's enabled in the settings as well. And then 
when you open up the Internet Search dialog, a new video window will pop 
up so you can scan ISBN codes.

The webcam device has to be /dev/video0 (or 
/sys/class/video4linux/video0/dev) That's hard coded at the moment.
