Turn off webcam?

I've noticed in multiple versions of Cura, whenever it's printing, my laptop webcam light comes on. Even if I have the timelapse turned off, it's occupying my webcam, which means I can't Skype while it's printing. Is there some way to turn off the webcam within Cura?

    Thanks from me too. I'm running 14.01 (stable) under the wine Windows emulator on Linux - and getting a crash, which I trace back to Cura/gui/util/webcam.py/vidcap.pyd in the backtrace. Cura is able to detect my controller (ttyUSB0) but seems to not play well with the Linux webcam under wine's emulation.

    I was hoping the stable release would avoid other problems - now it looks like I'll have to grab it as soon as it is out.

    Use the linux release ;-)

    RC7 for Debian/Ubuntu is very stable and will be made official soon.
