hi,
I am not sure if this is the pace to be putting this, I am sorry if it isn't.
I have a web cam which works on my old windows computer but not on my mac g4. Is there a way to make it work? thanks in advance.

There's something on sourceforge, somewhere that lets you use some webcams. Thing is that a webcam has to be Quicktime compatible for you to be able to use it natively.

I'll see if I can dig up the webcam thingy.

There's the thing I was thinking of.

There's also a thing called iChatUSB... which lets you use unsupported webcams in iChat:
