    I would like to use a USB webcam instead of the built in isight with the application Garagesale.

    Does anyone know how to do this?

    Many thanks.

    If the webcam you have does not come with a mac driver, try the external webcam app called macam. I have used it to interface an external webcam with webcam enabled apps before so it may work for you.

    Garagesale should have a preferences somewhere to select between cameras. If not, install the macam drivers, disable the built in iSight (Google should be able to help, I can't remember exactly what to do), and see if that works.
