    ichat doesnt find camera
    I have a Logitech QuickCam Pro 4000 webcam. I downloaded the MAC OS X download from the logitech website (link here). I installed the software fine. The QuickCapture software works and if i open QuickTime i can record movies using the camera, however iChat just says "No Camera attached."


    What can i do to get iChat to realize that the camera is there? Thanks!

    also i just noticed that in ichat the microphone is listed as "unknown USB Audio device" (which is the webcam) and the audio levels are represented in the audio bar but still no camera video input! AHHHHHH

    I believe that iChat only supports firewire cameras for video.

    This is true, however there is a hack that is supposed to allow iChat to use USB webcams.

    I recently purchased this software and it works great with my Logitech 4000 USB cam. Well worth the ten bucks, considering the Logitech cam is about 1/2 the price of the iSight camera.
