Bug Description

When I try to record video from my webcam (Bus 006 Device 002: ID 0ac8:303b Z-Star Microelectronics Corp. ZC0303 Webcam)
Arista fails with a message:
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/arista/transcoder.py", line 228, in _got_info
    self._setup_pass()
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/arista/transcoder.py", line 396, in _setup_pass
    height = int((float(wmin) / owidth) * oheight)
ZeroDivisionError: float division by zero

The webcam works with any other capture software, except arista.
Arista 0.9.7 on 64-bit Ubuntu.
