All functionality provided by QTCapture is also provided by AVCapture, with the difference that QTCapture relies on a deprecated ObjC-API above the 90s QuickTime implementation while AVCapture is the modern approach based on AVFoundation.

AVFoundation was introduced on OS X in 10.7, which is the minimal OS version we require for VLC 3.0.

Unless anyone raises a hand quickly, I’ll remove the QTCapture module for 3.0.

Best regards,
