I am a postgraduate student using max msp for my studies. I'm quite new to max msp and jitter.
I am running max msp on a macbook pro and am trying to capture video from an exernal, usb camera instead of the built in iSight camera. The first problem I encountered was getting a windows based USB camera to work on my mac.
For this I found macam at http://webcam-osx.sourceforge.net/
- I downloaded the driver and installed it as instructed. Opening the macam application switches on the USB camera and it functions fine.
When I try to capture the camera in a jitter window however, it does not. Instead 'Internal Error' comes up in the window. I am using 'getvdevlist' and the name of the webcam comes up in the drop down box.
Can anyone help? The web cam i am using is a Logitech Quickcam STX.
