    All of a sudden, Photo Booth won't work! It launches, but there's no video. QuickTime player shows video fine. I'm running 10.5.8 on a G5 Power Mac connected to a Dell Monitor, that is the webcam that is used. It connects over USB.

    Any help?

    This wasn't happening yesterday and I can't think of anything that could have caused this...

    I do have about ~30 extra effects installed, but they've never caused a problem, and I put them in months ago. No other apps are using the camera, and I've tried disconnecting the USB cable and plugging it back in.

    I've also tried removing the added Photo Booth effects from /Library/Compositions to no avail.

    OK, after sleeping my computer overnight it's randomly started working fine again.
