    Hi guys,

    I've been working to get a document camera plugged into my computer, and I just got it working via a Canopus box. The Canopus box takes the s-video and sends the signal through firewire to my Mac.

    But the image is upside down. Flipping the camera around would be very inconvenient... is there any program I can get that will allow me to invert the video signal? Also, what's the best way to display a video signal on the screen? I'm using screen capture software so I want the video image on the screen while I'm recording. So far I have only figured out iChat --> Video Preview. It seems to me there should be something more handy... with maybe a few zoom buttons, reflect image, that sort of thing...

    Thanks!

    iGlasses by Mcamm

    It's a great add-on to any application which uses the system's video resources (iChat, QuickTime, PhotoBooth, etc.). You can make just about any modification to the video input, including rotate, mirror, invert.

    It's not yet Snow Leopard compatible, but they're working on it. If you're still on 10.5, no problem.

    That's exactly what I am looking for. I am at 10.6 but I might boot up from another disk just to use that program. Thanks! :D

    What a bummer... I re-installed Leopard, then set everything up on the new partition to accommodate iGlasses... and then found out upon launching that it doesn't work for "DV" sources, just iSight cameras. :eek::p

    Thanks again though Gr8fly, much obliged for your help anyway. It just seems like it should be such a simple thing to do... I can't believe it's such a difficult a feat to accomplish.

    I just need my video input flipped horizontally! Please Apple please! :D

    Hi,
    I have iGlasses 2.1.2 and they claim that it works in Photo Booth but I cannot get it work. It works find in other apps like Skype.

    Is it working for you ?

    Thanks,
    Tex

    Check their manager app (iGlasses Manager) and see if Photo Booth is enabled.

    Does anyone have any update from ecamm on when iGlasses will be working? I know it's only been three weeks, but I forgot how much I used it.

    I tried emailing them, but no answer...
