Macam – playstation eye – it does not working anymore!

November 10, 2010 | 7:13 pm

Hello people!

I need help with a stupid problem!
I normaly use the playstation Eye webcam with Max in a Mac computer, using Macam driver and it always worked… however, at this moment, it’s not working and I cant understand what is happening!!

I have the actual version of Macam, and the last version of Max too!
normally, when I choose the external webcam, on jit.qt.grab, appears the name of the webcam, but now only appears – USB Video Class Video – and when I choose this it opens the internal webcam!!!
I am in a realy trouble!

if anyone had the same problem and can help me, I’ll be very grateful!
Thanks for your hellp.

Best regards

K.

You might try one of the modified macam driver:

Does the macam app recognise your camera? If not, it might be worth reinstalling, or trying the camera on a different computer, just to narrow down where the problem lies.
