ps3 eye webcam doesn't work on Mountain Lion

September 19, 2012 | 10:14 am

It seems Mountain Lion doesn’t support madam driver for ps3 eye webcam.
Anyone have the same problem?
I get only one still frame.

Working here – MBP 2.53 C2D, OSX 10.8.1.

On my MBP OSX 10.8.1 I can use ps3 with max but not with the "macam application"
On my MacMini Max6 can’t use ps3 eye and "macam application" doesn’t work.

@bdc Does your "macam application" work? Can you send me a copy to try here? Thanks

Haven’t tried the macam application – only ever use the camera with max. Since this is a Max forum, I figured the intent was to use the camera with Max. I can try the macam application this evening.

Tried the macam. The preview window in macam looks like it’s capturing a single frame, although the status across the bottom does report a frame rate that varies slightly – I imagine it is reporting what the driver is doing. And clicking Record causes macam to crash.

I’ve just purchased a macbook pro and on this machine the PS3 eye has now stopped working :(

I have been experiencing problems with this as well. I have the single frame grab issue referenced by BDC, I have only got the feed to come through on CommunityCoreVision (CCV), and have got the audio to come through in QuickTime – but nothing else. I tried installing the driver in several places but no luck.

I am running 10.8.5 Anyone have any breakthroughs?

I’m on 10.9, but Apple seems determined to transition away from QuickTime and to AVFoundation – it wouldn’t surprise me if this was relevant to 10.8 also. Not really a solution, but I finally gave up with macam et al and bought a couple of Microsoft LifeCam’s; they seem to run without any troubles.

I needed to install Quicktime Player 7 to get mine to work . Now its fine.

Reviving an old post…
I just found out that some good fellows have released the sources of a new ps3eye driver that should work under Mavericks:

I don’t have any coding skills to build an external based on these sources, but maybe someone could be interested in helping save these good old cameras from obsolescence?
