I have a Chicony webcam ProdID 0xb300 (45824) VedorID 0x04f2 (1266)
in an Acer Aspire S3-391 (i5-3317U)

It does not show up as an iSight camera, just as a "HD Webcam".

Any suggestions?

I found this thread because I'm trying to fix the FaceTime issue that others have complained about; looking *very* pixelated… like 10x the normal size as if the camera were only 30 x 70 pixels… that, and after a half minute, the whole image starts flickering madly.


According to ideasonboard.org the Sunplus 1bcf:2809 webcam that comes with the Dell 3550 *is* supported by the Linux UVC driver, but it didn't say anything about whether the Sunplus 1bcf:2888 that came with my HP 4530s is UVC.


At any rate, I followed the instructions to the letter, editing the AnyiSightCam.kext (all 3 instances of both ID's in hexadecimal) and then installing it in S/L/E. In 'About my Mac' the webcam did show up as a 'Built-in iSight", which it didn't do before the kext... Unfortunately, the webcam simply doesn't function with kext installed... I get no image at all. Same with PhotoBooth.


Anyway, I removed the kext and I'm pretty much back where I started... highly pixelated FaceTime.


Can anyone confirm that the webcam that comes with the HP 4530s is UVC? I mean it is 28XX like that on the Dell's... so, it probably is, wouldn't you think? AND is there anything else I can do aside from the instructions to get my this webcam to function as it is supposed to?


Thanks in advance for any help.

Rob

Yes :-)

This Kext is working on every version of OSX, because it's just a info.plist merge kext...

 

@Andy

Thank you very much for this kext, its working awesome on 10.9.2 :-)

 

And it fixed my Camera :-)

Before my Cam's Light didn't turned off, now it turns off:-)

 

Cheers :-)

So my Microsoft VX800 webcam doesn't work anymore. It worked perfectly, but now, the hackintosh "sees" the webcam, but no video, black screen. Also, after a few seconds, the hackintosh FREEZES. It's fricking annoying.

Has anyone got this thing to work on Yosemite? Tried changing the vendor and product IDs to 7758/259 (1e4e:0103) but the cam still shows up as a USB2.0 Camera.

how can I confirm my webcam is or isn't ivc?

 

I have an Alienware M17x R4 and pretty much everything is working now apart from the webcam.

 

its listed in the USB section as Product ID 0x8127 vendor ID 0x064e, but the camera section says no video capture devices were found.

 

I tried the anyisight.kext and it changes these IDs to apple ones but still says no camera detected. is it just as simple as the fact this isn't a UVC camera?

this worked for me in the end, but I had to put it in /clover/kexts/other so it started early enough. now works as isight cam in all apps.
