i think you were asking for this file from 10.4.9 install. hope you find a solution for the webcam riddle.
THANKS. I still need to try it out. We need are all of the files the cam uses for this to work I think. That means the kext and the quicktime components also.
Here is a list of all of them that we need form 10.4.8/10.4.9 (I think 10.4.8 is the best at cam support):
IOUSBFamily.kext which holds AppleUSBVideoSupport.kext
I am not 100% this is the whole list but it has to be as this is all the stuff that loads when you use the cam. If there is one or two others please let me know. Also 10.4.8 may not have all of these files and that would make sense (especially VDC.plugin).
Here is what I have:
Now, I've installed aGent Webcam G3 but the main WebCam Monitor screen is always blank. BUT, if I select Monitor -> Video Settings I can see my image on the preview box!!!
I've tried to delete VDC.plugin but still no changes either in Skype, iChat, Photo Booth, Quicktime or anything else... all of them showing just a black screen... so, any ideas???
Once we get all the files from 10.4.8 I think it will solve your problem. The leopard versions just really limit the cams you can use.
the 10.4.8 and 10.4.9 frameworks do work - and yeah - maybe we only need the quicktime components from one of those two versions
im gonna try that kext
What did you come up with? We really need all of the files and from 10.4.8 would be the best to use.
I may have found a temporary solution but I have not yet tested it out
Not bad but its kind of an ugly solution. Having to go through all that to use your cam well I would not want to do that.
here is a ton of sonic drivers for os xhttp://www.sonix.com...x/family.do?f=3a bunch of em... gonna try some - u guys get started too http://www.sonix.com...ct.do?p=SN9C202this is imo - possibly a good try for us as our dv hp computers do have a mic beside the cam itself - this is probably some sheit that connect to one chip.lets try guys ! :DaRt
I have tried those before. There is no better match for me then what I have now which is SN9C201. However perhaps you guys will see a difference. Also the quicktime component never seems to load from the sonix driver. If we could get it to load it might really help us sonix and chioney users.
I've tried that IOUSBFamily.kext.rar... no results...
Maybe this can give us some help also...
I already mentioned looking at that page. That is how I arrived at the VDC.plugin solution and where I found out what the cam uses to load in the first place. Did you not see all my other posts above? We should be able to get closer with files from tiger now.
i am on acer crystal eye webcam on my aspire 4710 laptop. i could see a part of the frame in login options when i installed 10.4.9 whose kext i have uploaded. not even that lucky in 10.4.8, 10.5.1 or 10.5.2. tried macam, but no go.
let me know if i can be of any help.
Its not all that one kext. See the list above we need all of the files to make this work. If we get AppleUSBVideoSupport.kext and all the quicktime stuff from 10.4.8 we should be in business.
