It should be OK.

I got a similar message with vidcap32. (My guess is that Wine is
missing support for VfW capturing, but not many apps seem to use

All the fixme's from AMCAP likely indicate where functionality is
missing... Whether that affects your specific app is hard to say...
(Lots of people are significantly better at reading Wine logs than
me...) (It might also be possible that installing a Windows DLL might
fix it, but finding the right one might need some guessing / good
knowledge of how DirectShow is put toghether)

(But getting Amcap to work might be easier (at least testing it should
be) and it might fix several other apps...)

(Amcap also crashes for me, but thanks to an Ubuntu "fix" my webcam
only works in xawtv under Linux (Ubuntu 9.04 and newer), and it
crashes (Linux) Skype, so it is not suitable for testing Wine webcam

This might be relevant: http://bugs.winehq.org/show_bug.cgi?id=11666
(Closed, which seem quite stupid for an easy to test and readily
available DirectShow SDK demo with source available...) (If Amcap
doesn't work other DirectShow apps are unlikely to work) (If you are
willing to test the app accationally, you might get it reopened..)
(Not sure what the relevant processes are)
