    If your camera is non-digital, you'll need to manually press "play" on the camera in order to start the feed to your MBP. Also, you might try using iMovie instead of Quicktime. Be sure to select the correct source in the menu for your import.

    It is non-digital and I pressed play and this little blue light on the cable came on for a split second before turning off. I tried to import into iMovie but I didn't see anything to do with the camera or cable listed anywhere.
