What is the general compatibility of OSX with webcams? I have an old Logitech Quickcam pro and a creative webcam and am wondering if these will work with the Mac Mini I plan to purchase soon. Does OSX have a generic driver model that work with most webcams?
I am currently looking to purchase a webcam for my Apple Desktop. I am really interested in buying the logitech C910 Webcam. I know on their website it says that this webcam is not officially supported by the Mac OS. However I am wondering if there is anyway I could make it work. I would be using it for Facetime, Skype, and Photobooth. I read that you can run the Webcam in UVC mode, but I'm not sure if these applications will still work with it.
I need to stream a video of my choosing using amsn in OsX. I found an app named macam that is suposed to do just that, among other things. I followed the intructions but I just can't get it to recognize the dummy webcams.
I have a Mac Pro and am looking for a Webcam/Mic. There are many on the market so I'm having a hard time deciding which one to get. I know some are HD and I'd be glad to get an HD webcam but that is not necessary. I have several questions:
-I have looked at mainly Logitech Webcams but are there other brands I should look at?
-I want one that will mount to the top of the monitor
-I use the Mac side mainly and would like to use it with Photobooth, iChat, and Facetime and possibly Skype in the future. There are times that I use Windows XP or Windows 7 through VMWare so I would like a webcam that has drivers for both Mac OS 10.6 and Windows XP/7
-The other feature I would like is one that has a built in mic. There are times I will only use the mic and not the video. Is it possible to get a webcam that works also in mic/sound mode only?
I have a G4 with OSX 10.3.9 and need a webcam to use with Skype. All I can find are webcams for PC's. I understand that there are webcams that are UVC compliant and can be used with Macintosh OS X 10.4.9 and up, but not 10.3.9 What webcams can I use with 10.3.9?
I am looking for a quality HD or even FULL HD webcam that captures smooth video on my MacBook pro. This cam is used to do some video recording of my dj sessions for friends and colleagues. Sound is taken from a high end sound interface.
I was told that Logitech webcams like the full HD C910 cannot work together with my Mac OS X (driver not exist). Is that right?
What other choice do I have to record better quality HD movie via webcam?
I have a iBook and would like to get a webcam to work with MSN Messenger for Mac 5.1.1. Unfortunately my budget does not stretch to an iSight. Can someone advise on a compatible webcam that would work with Tiger and MSN Messenger.
my friend recently inherited a g4 iBook running leopard. these ones were just before apple began adding webcams. hence there is no webcam on this laptop, does anyone know of a good webcam that is compatible with OS X leopard and the g4 iBook.
I am hooking a mac mini up to my HDTV and plan on hooking up my web cam on top of the TV and don't know what web cam to get. I need it to have a built in mic and display decent video. I would like to spend $50 but I will spend more if I have to.
I started looking for a used iSight for my new MP, but the prices are crazy! I thought I should get one so I could use it with Skype on OS X or Windows, and MSN with video on Windows so I can talk with my family back in Australia.
I figured I could get something different for much cheaper and get way more quality.what would work in either bootcamp and OS X, but work with iChat, Photobooth etc as well?
I have a MacBook with built in webcam, external webcam, and iChat. Next to everyone who has a Mac on iChat is the green box, but there is a phone icon rather than a video icon.
Video chats used to work, but suddenly they stopped. Clicking the green icon next to my name on top opens a box that days "My Build-in iSight" and I can see myself in that webcam, but can not make video chats. How can I fix this?
Alright, so I've previously made a thread about deciding to get the 2.66 Quad Core Mac Pro. And I'm probably going to purchase one. Just one more thing. What is the best webcam out there that I can use for my 20" Cinema Display? I know that the new Microsoft Webcam can do 720p now, which is really nice, but I was wondering if there was a good webcam that is Mac compatible?
I recently about 6 weeks ago got a iBook G4. Today i bought a webcam from the local supermarket, I need to know how to i make it work with msn also what version of msn do i need to download to view webcams?

I went to the Target website and they have this new sweepstakes and you need to how your webcam on..so I'm new to Mac and didn't know how to turn it on so it asked me to hit something that said "usb" and I did and now my cam is not working.
My fiancee got her first mac, a mbp, today and we are struggling with finding a chat client that she can use on the mac and that i can use on my pc that will allow for video calls/webcams between us. Can anyone recommend me a good client that we can use?
