    Hi everyone, I have a Macbook and it comes with Photo Booth which is kinda cool. But I was wondering if there is any freeware software that lets you utilise your built-in iSight as a video recorder?

    How would I record with the iSight in imovie? I would see the camera on for about 15 seconds then the program says DV-camera not found, then it would shut off my iSight camera.

    Just hit record I think. If you dont use it for a while it probably turns off to save power.

    hey I just posted to Apple Discussions - anyone have any issues with choppy video while recording with iMovie? Audio records just fine throughout.

    I'm willing to look into QT Pro - be nice to hear if there are any other dedicated apps out there that would do the job especially for longer captures.

    I'm sure there are more than a few iSight capture applications.

    is it bad etiquette to revisit old threads? I thought it would be better to continue a conversation opposed to starting a new one!

    was very hopeful this would be all I needed to use and plagued with audio unpredictably recording in Photo Booth!
