IceCam on Mac OS 10.4.8

I have installed a Macally IceCam on my Max OS X. When I click on the Webcam Monitor icon on my desktop, I get a black Icecam monitor screen. Left all setting in Default. Any thoughts on possible cause? Wrong settings?

Re: IceCam on Mac OS 10.4.8

This is possibly the strangest reply ever - to my own question! But I have tried out several possibilities and discovered that: If you plug your IceCam into a USB-hub you will lose some signal; if at all possible, plug your cam -directly- into a USB-port on your computer. Much better/stronger signal!

Did you happen to get a cd with thyat icecam? if so, then you need to uninstall it, unplug it from your mac book. and using the cd driver, run the installation again and plug it back into your mac book. another thing that you might want to do is to run up manually for your mac book. sometimes the drivers for the usb ports need to be updated.

    ICECAM install problem

    You may try to find out where the fault is, one thing to know is use another the same driver and install it on your PC. If it installed then your previous driver is faulty, if it poses the same problem you have the problem on your PC. Try first using another same driver.

    Problem with macally icecam

    1. You can open only one video application at a time, therefore, you need to quit ALL the application first, then open the one application you want to use. such as YIM or Skype.

    2. Please open the iceCam Monitor, go to Monitor tab, check the "Record Video" and select "Record Until MouseClick".
    A new Save window will pop up, set up the filename and location and click SAVE button.
    Once you click the mouse button, it will save the recorded video as QuickTime Movie clip format file on the selected location.
    If you want a picture, you could run the video and pause it and make a screen shot to grab the picture from the video.
