    Hello,

    my husband has a powerbook G4 and I tried to install a webcam on it for his video conferences (which if successful will let him acquire macbook air and iSight in the near future:)) but for now...his webcam is not transmitting the image to the other person's computer. I have reinstalled the mac webcam driver many times and no positive results so far.

    Any ideas,please?

    Can you see the webcam in Preferences > Video?

    What webcam do you have? More info would be helpful. If your using Skype, there are only a few cams that will work. Did you check out Skype to see if your cam was compatible?

    Here is the link for the webcam I have:http://www.bluescale.co.uk/Shop/webcam_for_mac/webcam_mac_5_1_megapixel_night_vision_webcam_mac.asp
    It is Skype compatible.
    The thing is that I made it work on the first day. Gladly announced "the news" to my husband and left the handling of the rest(=use) to "his mercy". In the evening I found out that it didn't work anymore:confused:
