Question about Macally IceCam Personal Web Camera

1 Answer

Can't seem to get it to work with MSN, Yahoo, or Skype??


Hi all, 
I just purchased Ice Cam for my Apple Ibook G4. I installed all the software and restarted my computer so it would recognize my web cam.
I am able to view the 'monitor video' so the cam works. However, when I got on Yahoo messenger the video froze up and on MSN it did not even recognize it altogether.
I am already considering taking it back, since a webcam should be as simple as 'plug n' play' to setup.
I would appreciate some help with this. Thanks.

Your cam also needs setup on your messaging program

yahoo cam setup
Go to Messenger at the top left and click on it.
Next go down to Preferences and click on it.
Next Calling and Devices on the right and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
Next go to the Test Audio section and in blue writing click on “Open the call setup assistant” and follow the instructions on the left window
let me know if this helped

I can not install viber apple ibook g4.when ever i try to down load i am told the application viber can not supported by this architecture


Hi Christy,
Viber appears to work only with OSx 10.7 and up, which is not supported on an iBook.
When they say "viber can not supported by this architecture", they're referring to the iBook not having an Intel processor like the MacBooks do.
Hope this helps!

Download skype ibook g4


It could be that the new version of skype is not compatible with the older ibook, what you can do is go to http://www.oldapps.com/mac/skype.php and download one which is compatible with the system you are currently using. It may be a case though that skype will require the newer version to work properly though. Hope this helps.

Most new software won't work any the iBook computers. A fix is to find older version of the software that support Apple computers that use the PowerPC processor architecture. The software is often labeled Universal or PowerPC.
