    I've recently upgraded to Sierra and run versions 16A320 and a clean install of 16A323.
    Both versions I haven't been able to do FaceTime video calls.
    My setup is a Mac Pro with an external FW iSight camera.
    Facetime audio calls work fine - FaceTime recognises when the isight is turned off or disconnect, but fails to display video.
    The isight works fine since I can still do video calls using Skype and Lync.
    Even Photo Booth still works fine.
    Just in the FaceTime app won't display video.

    Anyone else had this issue ?
