i was just wondering if Blah101 ever figured this problem out. i've had the exact same problem for at least a couple of months now. i didn't even realize the problem extended into skype (i hardly ever use it), but it does indeed. most notably, no window pops up in facetime even though the blue lights on my logitech C910 do light up. the cam will work in photo booth.
i tried installing the IOUSBFamily.kext file uploaded to this thread to both my E/E and S/L/E folders, but the problem persists.
any help would be greatly appreciated.
UPDATE: i installed the Legacy USB Support package from multibe@st, which replaces the IOUSBFamily kext and deleted the kext uploaded to this thread from the E/E folder, and now i can get facetime to work IF i launch photo booth immediately after facetime. so i've made some progress, but it still doesn't just work. any ideas? perhaps its the specific webcam (seems to be a common thread) or something to do with an older build (i'm using a GA-P55M-UD2 mobo)?
again, any help would be appreciated.
I actually still have this problem. However, I find your sudo fix for facetime to be working on my end. I tried it with Skype, it didn't work. Wish I knew why this is happening, it is really annoying to have to reboot to windows everytime I want to video chat with someone on skype. Plus, I have to get a different Mac device to do facetime, which is also inconvenient.
