I work in the dental industry and am trying to integrate a dental camera into Mac OS X. The camera uses the standard USB Video Class, YUY2.

I am able to get the camera to initialize and power up, but no video.

I am not sure what else to say. If anyone needs more info let me know and I will respond back with as much info as I can.

Attached you will find a PDF of the USB Video Payload....maybe it will help a bit.

You didn't say which version of OS X you are using. See this wikipedia entry regarding when Apple started supporting USB cameras that support the UVC standard.

If that document you linked to is regarding UVC, then I'd think Apple would handle the YUY2 compression format.

Perhaps check out the maccam page.

The obvious question is, have you tried that camera on another system such as a Windows box. Perhaps the camera is broken.

When asking questions, post the version of your software. You'll receive better answers.

Please post your results to the thread as it is good feedback.
