I recently bought a webcam that claims to be compatible with Mac by UVC standards. It does "work" with my computer in the sense that it gives a video and allows me to video chat. However, there are some features of it that don't work (e.g. 30fps frame rate...I can't get above 15fps, and 5 is more common). I am not sure that my computer has the necessary UVC drivers to make it work fully properly. I was just wondering if anyone could give me information as to whether or not it's possible to simply download webcam drivers online. Also, is there some way to determine what drivers I currently do have loaded?

Thanks.

Give this a try...

macam : USB webcam support for Mac OS X

The issue is in not being able to adjust the resolution of most of these cameras down low enough to provide a good frame rate since most of them have no software for the Mac and they just run at the highest resolution possible.

If you bought a Logitech, here's what info they have.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
