Skype is working great here for both video and audio conferencing - for me this was a must have app to consider using osx86 for my fulltime machine. Fullscreen video is faster than it was on XP !


Here is my config

I use the same skype version with a Canon Dv900. The strange thing is that i couldn't get sound in via my Canon camcorder. I have to use an M-audio Transit (in which I put in a mic).

And the strangiest thing is that ichat is able to get both video and audio from my Canon DV cam.

Any suggestions?


Thanks for the interesting thread.

I understand what you're talking about but remeber that a DV cam is a little bit different compared to a webcam. I don't use nor a macam driver neither other generic webcam drivers. My camcorder is recgnized by the system and, as far as I know, in your configuration your problem is that macam still doesn't support audio....


Anyway thanks for your reply, if you discover more, please, let me know...

See you n the italian forum... ;-)
