    Hi there,
    I was wondering if anyone knew how I could use a video camera with Photobooth instead of the built in sight camera.

    EDIT: Trying to do this over USB as i dont have an RCA capture card

    Can the following help?

    PS: If the above link does not work and you want help in troubleshooting that problem, provide the following information:
    • Mac OS X version
    • Mac model (+ year or better)
    • camera model

    Thanks @simsaladimbamba for your assistance - although its not working. I think it has to do with my camera not being able to live stream over USB.

    I have a 27" Late 2012 iMac OSX 10.9

    I am trying to get it to work with a Panasonic HC-V500M

    Any advice would be great.

    Thanks

    Sorry to hear, I found as much, as I remember, but got called away.

    You can look for compatible cameras or even invest in a webcam, as far as I know, Logitech offers Mac compatible ones with good quality and acceptable prices.
