    old USB isight issues
    I have an old usb isight working with my macPro (I do not have a built in isight). It works fine for things like skype but I am noticing that at sites like chatroulette their web site cannot detect and use my camera so I cannot be seen. It doesn't work with either firefox or safari. Is there anyway I can get functionality?

    Thanks as always.

    No, you do not have an old USB iSight. Apple only made an external iSight that was firewire based.

    Unfortunately I don't have an answer regarding using the camera with such services. I see that site is Flash based. Perhaps right clicking on the page, which brings up the Flash settings, you can set the camera up.

    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.
