jit.qt.grab problem

    Oct 29 2009 | 9:52 pm
    I'm trying to use the built in video camera on my MacBook Pro in Max5. I'm using the patches from this tutorial:
    Anyway, I click the "open" message to jit.qt.grab and then turn on the [qmetro] and all is well for about 30 seconds. Then the internal video camera stops working and will not work again (in Max or any other program) until I restart the machine.
    If I try to use the "open" message again, I get the error messages:
    could not create video channel -9404
    error opening device for grab
    I have searched the forum but did not find a solution.
    Any help would be appreciated,
