Apple iSight and Max/MSP/Jitter

    May 10 2006 | 9:55 am
    I have an iSight camera but I can't load the video feed into my Max projects. I have been using all of the video example patches but the video feed from the iSight never comes through.
    Any suggestions? Is a particular object or setting needed to make this work?

      Hello Bruce,
      I am using OS 10.4.6 on an iMac G5. I am using Max/MSP version 4.5.7 and Jitter i'm not sure, only downloaded about 2 weeks ago.
      Does that help with my diagnosis?!

      does it work in other programs like iChat?

      Try restarting your computer, and making sure that other applications such as iChat are closed. If the problem persists, send us a note at
