Live Webcam Stream -> Keynote Presentation?

For an upcoming theater project, I need to have a slide presentation (using Keynote '09) that has embedded in it a live webcam feed. Does anyone know of any free OS X webcam streaming software that will give me a straight-up movie file I can import into my presentation? I've tried using Apple's Quicktime Broadcaster software, but it has a nasty lag even when streaming the webcam locally, which doesn't cut it for us. Lag really shouldn't be an issue, since the webcam in question is connected to the computer displaying the slideshow, but since it needs to be embedded in the presentation we can't just use standalone video software.

    Why wait for a darkened room and a projector to present vacation photos or Keynote slides? Now you can do it all remotely, right in iChat. Put on a photo slideshow, click through a Keynote presentation, or play a movie — in full screen, accompanied by a video feed of you hosting — while your buddy looks on. In fact, you can show any file on your system that works with...

    I've used this at the office, works a treat.
