Applications :: Using OoVoo With ISight - No Video?

Jan 24, 2009

I'm trying to use ooVoo video conferencing software on my Mac to do three way video chat with a couple of friends that are using Windows. I've got it installed fine, but for some reason it's not recognizing iSight (built in on a Macbook), no matter what I do. It recognizes the built in mic, but no video at all.

OS X :: Using ISight To Stream Video?

Sep 9, 2009

I am not a huge fan of reality TV, but recently tuned in to an episode of Gene Simmons Family Values only to she Gene's daughter log on to a computer to view a streaming video from her Apple Notebook to see who was taking items from their kitchen.

I would love to be able to set up my Apple to view what in the world my bird, a large Macaw, is doing throughout the day to get nuts and seed some 10 feet or so from her cage. She is a great bird and doesnt scream or bite, but she is a trip and loves to joke around.

Hardware :: Record Video Chat Using ISight?

Aug 11, 2009

I know you can use iSight as a camera to record in iMovie or Photo Booth...but is it possible to record a video chat? So say me and my bro are chatting, can iSight record that chat, so I would be able to see both me in a little box, and my bro in the main portion of the screen? Or would I need more of a screen capture program for that?

MacBook Pro :: Video Chat In Yahoo Messenger - ISight Not Working

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: How To Use External Isight To Take Video Snapshot In Automator

Jun 26, 2012

I want to use automator to make a time lapse video, but I'd like the video snapshots taken to come from my external isight camera (not the built-in isight).   

I see that someone else had the same question a few years back (https://discussions.apple.com/message/11257733#11257733), but I thought I'd try again.  Maybe things have changed since 2010? 

I'm running snow leopard on an early 2008 black macbook.

Info:
Automator, Mac OS X (10.6.8)

Applications :: Using Yahoo Messenger ISight ?

Mar 9, 2010

I've been using Yahoo Messenger with Snow Leopard just fine for a while, but now all of a sudden the webcam feature does not work. When I try to invite someone to view my webcam they just see a black screen that says "Starting Webcam Session...", but it never loads. Similarly, when I try to view someone's webcam, the same thing happens on my end. Has anyone else encountered this problem? Like I said, it was working fine until a few days ago.

Applications :: Software To Use ISight As Security Camera?

Apr 27, 2010

I have been having someone steal UPS/FedEx packages from my front door. Most recently, I lost my son's birthday present. Luckily Amazon replaced it for free but they can not do that every time.

I have a MagicMouse coming tomorrow and wonder if I can use my iMac's iSight camera to capture the culprit?

I'd like to be able to aim the iMac out the front window through a gape in the curtains and use some type of software to periodically take time lapse shots or better yet even video?

Anyone have thoughts? It needs to run from about 6:30 am until the driver usually arrives which is between 12:30-2:00 but then be available to run until I get home about 4:30.

Applications :: QR Code Reader For Mac OS X That Utilizes ISight

Apr 15, 2009

I've been using Optiscan as a QR Code Reader on my iPhone. I'm looking for essentially the same type of program, except it will be on my MacBook Pro (or any other Mac desktop/notebook) that uses an iSight Camera. There are programs that generate QR Codes, but I am looking for one that does specifically reading. It can do both, or any combination, but the reading must be included. I preliminary Google search brings me close, a lot of possibilities (mostly in Japanese, which i do not read). But ultimately I have found nothing. I was hoping someone could direct me towards program.

Applications :: Won't View Posted Video / Can Watch Video On Youtube

Jan 16, 2010

It must be some ad blocker or something, but I can't view videos. I can't seem to find what's causing it. I can go to YouTube and watch a video, but when someone posts a link, I am unable to make it play. I'll get a site with a black rectangle where the video is supposed to be. Happens on links from tweets too. Safari and Firefox both. I tried the Flash uninstall/reinstall/disc permission/restart routine twice.

Applications :: Download Embedded Flash Video From Website /download Original Video

Mar 2, 2010

Here's my problem: I'd very much like to download an embedded flash video from this page: http://bit.ly/d24fEU. (One has to click 'start' for the flash to load.)

But web developers have become wily it seems. No longer do the old methods appear to work. I've tried: Apps for downloading youtube videos, using the Activity window in Safari (only a small SWF file of about 21kb appears in the activity window), numerous Firefox plugins� To no avail.

There are apparently apps for Windows that can manage to download these tricky types of videos, is there anything or any method on the Mac? I've been ripping my hair out trying. I've searched the forum, but none of the suggested methods work.

OS X :: Flash Not Detecting ISight

Nov 11, 2010

This is the first time I've tried using my built-in iSight since the 10.6.5 update, and on any site I've tried it, it doesn't show USB Video Class Video, the correct option, as a selectable option. Nor is DV Video and option. Only Built-In iSight, and two "Google" cams, none of which work. Actually, on Tinychat, Built-In iSight works for the thumbnail for picking the cam option, but won't work once selected. But that's always been the case; the proper option won't show as a thumb but works fine once selected. I hope I'm making sense.

Any solutions? Adobe says I'm running version 10,1,102,64.

Update: It seem either uninstalling Google's video and audio adapters </Library/Application Support/Google/GoogleVoiceandVideoUninstaller.app> or installing a beta version of Flash [URL] solves the issue.

MacBook :: ISight Turning On By Itself?

Sep 22, 2008

He has a stock white 2.2GHz MacBook, the 2.2GHz SR, with 1GB RAM. Now, recently, he noticed that the green indicator light next to his iSight camera, is always on, even if he just started up his 'Book. If he tries to open Photo Booth, all he gets is not a picture on the Photo Booth window, but in fact, just plain black inside the window, with no error message. Does anyone know what is going on?

And if it's the photobooth reason that I think it is, then how do I get those programs back on my mac?

Desktops :: G5 ISight IMac Shuts Itself Down (OS 10.5.8)

Apr 19, 2010

Have a 17" G5 iMac iSight (OS 10.5.8) that works normally for several hours and then the CPU temperature suddenly spikes and the computer shuts itself down. When I check the Temperature Monitor (application) history graph, it shows normal temperatures and then a spike. There are 3 fans and I don't know which is failing or whether there's something in the temperature sensing that's gone haywire. My only solution is to do a forced restart. By this time, things have cooled and it will work for several hours.

OS X :: ISight Not Working With Flash Player?

Nov 13, 2010

I have had my macbook pro 10.6.5 for over 2 years and have never had this problem. But this morning I tried to use my webcam with flash player online and it wouldn't work. I have spent about 2 hours reinstalling browsers, flash player and repairing permissions in disk utility but still no video.

The iSight does work in Photobooth and iMovie but for some reason when I select it in the Adobe Flash Player Settings nothing happens. The green light doesn't even go on.

Does anyone have any ideas of what I can try next?

I am studying abroad in France this semester so do not have my OS installation disks with me. I do have a time machine backup though

Hardware :: Using External ISight And No Audio?

Oct 28, 2007

I purchased an original iSight after having problems with my USB cam. I just did a clean install of Leopard on my mac pro. The USB cam would get errors in iChat such as "Camera in use by another application, etc).

I uninstalled the iChatUSBcam software, checked the Library/quicktime folder, etc.

I hooked up the iSight and it seemed to work, then the video went a bit haywire. I thought it was just a glitch, but when I tried to video chat, the other user could not hear my voice. I checked the System pref sound input and it was on the iSight, but the meter was not responding properly.

I thought it may be a hardware issue, so I tested the iSight on my mac mini (G4) - It worked perfectly.

I have uninstalled iChat and reinstalled it from the Leopard disk. Still no go...

After two days, I currently get a good video signal, but am not getting any audio when hooked up to any port on my mac pro, but it works perfectly on the mac mini, so I am still convinced that this is a some sort of driver of software conflict

MacBook :: Isight Turning On At Startup?

Mar 12, 2008

My isight camera (as indicated by the green light) on the macbook turns on by itself during startup. Funnily enough, no applications are open that utilizes the camera (eg. skype, ichat, photobooth). The only way I can turn it off is by shutting the macbook off and turning it on again. Not even a restart will do, as the green light is still on after a restart.
