Due to the auto-launch features of Mac OSX, a connected iSight webcam may not initially work in an Adobe Connect meeting.
The most common challenge is that iChat AV (for Mac OS X Panther 10.3 or later) automatically launches whenever the camera is inserted or the lens cap is opened, thus taking over the software driver.
While in the meeting, before using the Camera and Voice Pod, unplug your iSight camera from the firewire port, make sure the lens cap is in the open position, then immediately plug it back in.
Note: For iMac/PowerBook models with a built-in iSight, you may need to deactivate then re-activate the camera. Please consult your Macintosh OSX system documentation if you are unsure how to do this.
You will now be presented with the Flash Player's camera configuration dialog window.
- If your iSight is a stand-alone Firewire type of device, the camera is generally attached via the "IIDC FireWire Video" driver. Select this to start your camera.
- If your iSight is the built-in or USB type, the camera is generally attached via the "USB Video Class Video" or similar driver. Select this to start your camera.
