can anyone on this list help me in finding a webcam ftp app for mac?

we have been using oculus for years to upload webcam images to UpStage, 
but since migrating to our new server it doesn't want to work any more. 
we haven't absolutely established that the problem is with oculus, but 
as other apps such as fwink on windows are still working as before, it 
suggests that the problem is with oculus. so i'm trying to find an 
alternative app to see if i can make it work.

the app needs to be able to ftp images from a webcam to the server 
(rather than streaming) & we need it to be configurable for the time 
between images (e.g. 1 second up) & also for the size of the image. 
(oculus was great in that it allowed you to adjust the size to anything, 
by dragging the lower right corner of the window; many other webcam ftp 
apps only give something like 3 specific sizes that you can choose from.)

we need something that is free or shareware, & ideally open source. i am 
trying with evocam at the moment, which seems to be the main option, but 
haven't yet managed to get it working with our server, & it has just 
frozen & crashed : (

if anyone knows of anything else i could try that would be much appreciated!
