    Turning on the built in cam
    I have the MacBook and I am trying to get the built in cam to work with a program called ISPQ with out much luck. Is it not possible to simple turn on the cam and use it with what ever program I chose?
    Thank you for any help

    Specs:

    If the program isn't programmed to access the iSight then it will not work

    Thanks for taking the time to answer. I hope Mac in some future patch adds a on button to the cam so that it can be used with any program that uses a webcam

    Its not an apple issue. 3rd party programs have full access to the camera, but if they don't program their software to use it, it won't work

    Welcome to Mac-Forums, WOGIT.

    iSpQ is listed on this webpage, A short list of some applications that work with iSight.

    I would contact the iSpQ support staff to see what can be done to solve this.

    If you do get it to work, it would be cool of you if you reported back and posted the solution for any other member having the same problem as you do.

    Here is the reply that they sent to me

    Our Solution:

    Hello

    Use iSpQ VideoChat>Preferences>Video to activate your built-in Mac camera. Be sure to quit any other program which also uses the camera before starting iSpQ.

    iSight is a generic name for several Apple Cameras. The external one is a firewire device while the integrated one uses USB. iSpQ uses the controls available in the drivers assigned to each camera. At the moment, the driver for the integrated camera has fewer available options than those for the external model.

    We have found several sources of software which might help, both having free trial periods:

    http://www.ecamm.com/mac/iglasses/ for a utility which adds controls to Apple iSight drivers

    http://www.ioxperts.com/index.html for enhanced drivers for Mac OS web cameras

    Now after my dinner I shall give it a try
