    I'm helping to put on a show, and as part of it they have a presentation (which I'm making), and during the show they want to be able to show a "scan" of the audience, via a camcorder linked into my MacBook. My question is - how can I embed this sort of live video into the Keynote presentation?

    same need

    hi VaatiKaiba

    Did you get any answers yet?
    I´ve been asking for the same thing. I have not found any "easy way" of doing it yet. I need it to present some small products on stage and a big crowd won´t see it without live video Jobs when he is presenting his products. The have a mixing table but for us who don´t....

    using iMovie you can show live video but its not in Keynote!!

    I did manage to find one thing - there's an Apple-made application called Quicktime Broadcaster, which, while quite old, can broadcast a live video (around 3 second delay), and it gives you a local URL, and I believe you can point Keynote to display the video at that location...

    I did find a walkthrough, but have lost it, will post again if I find it!

    bringing this thread back to life... I am looking for the same thing! still no answer for my exact needs yet. So I wanna do a presentation just like they do in WWDC. I know it's asking a lot, but I have the app 'reflector' and trying to embed that into keynote somehow. It's giving me a headache haha
