    when i go to a flash website that requests access to my webcam it asks for permission to use the webcam as usual, but my webcam does not activate. the webcam does still function in other os software like photobooth.

    i wasn't having issues prior to snow leopard so i was wondering if any other SL users were experiencing this issue

    Also having the same problem, the webcam is detected, but doesn't work in Snow Leopard. It does work in non-Flash apps (such as Photobooth) and was working fine in Flash in Leopard.

    This is on a 1st gen MacBook Pro. Anyone have a solution for this?

    Same problem...

    I'm having the same problem. The problem only started a couple of days ago and flash sites like Dailymugshot did work on SL before... I talked to support and tried all kinds of settings and followed instructions for Google Chrome on their blog
    ... no success yet. No restart, no turning on and off of plug-ins helped :(

    google voice and video

    I uninstalled google voice and video, and my cam is back online. I had the same issue... my cam would work in native apps, but not online flash based apps. It should be located in your (Macintosh HD)Disk -- Library -- Application Support -- Google folder. There is an uninstall app located there luckily. Uninstall that thing, and you should be up and running.

    That flash update is really for Chrome version it should not effect it in any way with other browsers.
