hTV is a Video Monitoring application based upon the old HackTV Carbon application ....

HackTV Carbon was the carbonized version of the venerable HackTV for Mac OS 9 and X. If you still need a camera monitor for that type system try HTV 0.1

You can find the hacktv sample code here if you need to go even further back than that ...

hTV 0.2: Launch!

Today at 8pm ESPDST (Eastern Standard Premature Daylight Savings Time), version 0.2 of the hTV low-Earth orbiting vehicle was catapulted into the stratosphere via rubber slingshot. The newly christened hTV will provide video monitoring services to Earth inhabitants running the Mac OS X operating system, version 10.2 or higher. Users can download client software from

An iSight or DV camera is needed to make full use of the software's video monitoring features, as no signals or anything else for that matter are transmitted via the orbiting vehicle. When asked about the vehicle's actual utility, Anton Medved, emigre and spokesperson merely answered, with a twinkle in his eye, "It's shiny and cool looking, k?" Panuru Labs' coordinator, a nocturnal subterranean being known to anxious local villagers only as "otojin", could not be reached for comment.

This isn't the old HTV that was sealed away all those months ago, this is a totally new hTV. Note the lowercase "h". Gripes, bugs, feature requests, and, of course, ecstatic praise can be forwarded to panuru.
