hello,

I've got an acer laptop with an integrated webcam orbicam 1.3 mega pixel.

I can't found any driver for this webcam, macam or ioxpert or ichatusb, nothing work.

Under linux ubuntu there is a driver (you can have more explanation on this page http://ubuntuforums....ad.php?t=322218 )

Is there anybody, who can make this webcam work under OSX jas 10.4.8 ppf1 kernel 8.8.1

Thaks in advance for all your advices.

I get an interesting problem on an Acer 9424WSMi. Macam powers the orbicam up (it's a Logitech btw) but what I see, whether with Macam or PhotoBooth is a green screen. Images and videos recorded are just...well, green.

So, no go here, either, unless some new development has been found. :/
