    Is it possible to use my Eyetoy camera as a webcam or for iChat? Am I smoking crack?

    I don't know if there is any software that uses unique eyetoy features, but I used my eyetoy with a webcam software called yawcam to make it work as an motion triggered alarm :cool: There's are many other features in yawcam like web streaming, automatic image captures to ftp server etc.

    If you're into this kinda stuff, i would definitely recommend it ;)

    The best part: It's free! :D

    sorry to threadjack\re open an old thread,

    I have an eyetoy that works in macam, and i did put the macam.component in library\quicktime

    but every other application only sees the eyetoy as a microphone, and it actually works as a mic which i found quite odd. but it only works as a camera in macam.

    mac os x 10.5.8
    ibook G4 ~1.2ghz 1.25gb
