I have access to two identical Flip Video camcorders.
I built a cheap $3 mounting bracket system so I could use them to shoot stereoscopic 3D video. I used two 1/4” X 20 screws (these fit the tripod mount on the cameras) and a couple of nuts and washers.
Also a bracket, I used some plumbing bracket. It was too large so I had to squeeze it smaller. You want the distance between the camera lenses to be about 6.5cm once they are screwed onto the bracket.

then reboot from the HD. This probably violates your license agreement so don’t do it, I certainly wouldn’t.
Update: You can automate the deletion and creation of the ServerVersion.plist file using a LaunchDaemon. Put the following xml in a new file
