    Canon DV as a webcam
    How do I go about using a mini DV as a webcam? I think I need some software & have registered on mac.com.

    Any help would be appreciated, thanks

    I have used a mini-dv for a webcam. All I needed was a firewire cable. Plugged the firewire into the mac and the mini-dv end into the camera. Yahoo automatically detected the camera and i was up and running. no extra software needed. I got the firewire cable from newegg.com It was simply plug-and-play.
