Does anyone know how I can use 2 firewire camcorders on a mac?

I want to be able to switch between the two cams so I can show different angles in a live webcam type stream.

I've seen the Belkin Firewire Hub and wonder if this will work.

I know it enables multiple camcorders to be plugged into my mac, but how would I switch scenes..... live?

Thanks

What programme would you be using for the live webcam? You might be able to select the video input on the programme.

Its called "justcamit lite"

I can only see connections for one main cam in the prefs

Think I need a hardware switcher of some sort
