Simple camera detection on Macbook

Hi,

I’m trying to use the built-in camera of my macbook with jitter library cv.jit but it doesn’t seem to work.

How can I do a simple test ?

The camera works perfectly with other software.

cheers

go to the the jit.qt.grab (mac) or jit.dx.grab (win; I think it’s “dx”) helpfile. if you get input there, you should be good to go…

I’ve already tried the jit.qt.grab thing but it doesn’t work either.

Are there some video-preferences-stuff where I can set the camera in max ?

did you populate the menus in the helpfile? does your camera show up there?? if not, do you have a full install of quicktime like it says in the helpfile or the 3rd party vdig for win?

In the cv.jit.grap help file there’s a settings button: the preview of my camera was set to none, I’ve just set it to compressed and the camera works.

There’s nothing like that on the jit.qt.grab help file, but at the moment I just need the cv.jit library, so I’m fine with it.

Thanx for your help!
