    i was wondering if anyone could help me in getting the ps3 eye to work with my emac. os x 10.5.6

    i have downloaded the latest macam and installed it, dragged the component over to the folder, and copied the component into the library/quicktime folder.

    when i open macam it recognizes that i have the ps3 eye hooked up, but the screen is black. skype and yahoo also recognize the camera, but the cam monitor screen is black.

    i really want this to work, and have seen many posts from people with the emac/eye/macam combo and a lot of people have said it works.....

    any suggestions? i would greatly appreciate it!!

    I had a similar problem, but have it working now. In macam, turn down the fps setting until you see video. Once you have the video working in macam, save the settings (Select save settings from menu I think) and quit. That should store your fps settings so when you go into skype you will see video. I took me awhile to figure out that you had to save the settings in macam once I got the video working in it. The camera works great and you can even use the mic as the audio input device for skype.
