So i try to send my friends a little hello video and what not but when i go on their page and click the video and/or camera button.

I click on record/take from webcam and it will not find the isight camera!

Im using safari and i tried this is Firefox and the outcome is still the same.

Does anyone know the trick to do this???

**i know i can just upload a vid or pic but i its more convenient for me to do it this way if i can**

Hmmm, make sure that no other applications are using the iSight camera.

Works fine for me. Did you click the Allow button to let Facebook have access to the camera and mic?

What happened to the days of people just snapping a pic and uploading it? Have we really become THIS lazy?
