Post by starving student » Sat Feb 20, 2010 1:56 am

so' i've got a webcam hooked up to the macbook in addition to the onboard isight, but I'm trying to find the camera/isight prefferences or options in leopard and I don't see anything , I see the speaker, the mic but no camera, so what gives where's it at?

Looks like cam preferences are decided by the application, or maybe a driver for your external cam...

what is it you want to do with the second cam?
I'm assuming its a USB?
You'll probably need to down load the drivers for the second cam.
Do a restart and there will probably be an icon in the preferences panel.
