    I want to show a picture or a movie over the isight rather than my face.

    Is there software that will create a "fake" isight where I can show a quicktime video or any image? I know iChat can do this but most people don't use that.

    I've seen apps for windows that allow this. Thanks in advance.

    I might not be wrapping my head around this question properly...

    You want to use a still picture instead of the live video, for other people to see, as your status?

    You're not using iChat, so what program are you using to chat?


    Maybe you're looking for something like iStill : or iSight Capture : - but some more details on your exact application would help in determining exactly what you need.
