My webcam is not wking on my mac book pro ,it says device not connected


Thank you for contacting FixYa Support, I am glad to assist.

The best way to check if your iSight camera is working is to launch the built-in Mac OS X chat application, iChatAV and under Preferences check the video setting and see if the video will activate the built-in iSight camera.

As iChatAV is the defacto application to use and check video settings, if you cannot get the device to work, then you will more than likely need to take your Macbook in for at least a diagnostics to have your iSight camera checked.

This iSight is a built-in device, that if not working, as an internal device for your Macbook Pro, it can only be checked by a certified Mac technician.

If you are referring to an external web camera connected to your Macbook Pro, however, please feel free to reply back to this post and specify the model you have and we will be glad to assist you with that product.

Regards,

I have a camera on my macbook pro and I need to know how to use it to skype


The camera will turn on automatically when necessary. For example, in iChat, it will turn on automatically when you click the video camera icon next to someone's name in your buddy list, it will turn on automatically.

Likewise in Skype, simply click the video camera icon next to someone's name in your buddy list and it will initiate a video chat.

We purchased a macbook and cannot get it to work properly with gmail chat. we can see and hear who we are talking to but they cannot hear us. Help please


First go the system preferences and then sound and then click on the input and ensure that the built-in microphone is selected and check the volume is set to whatever you need.

In google chat go to options and then down to chat settings. You can then go to microphone under Voice and video chat and under microphone select either default device or built-in microphone. You can then verify your settings.

Hope this helps.

How to use the video chat in macbook??


just checking, but did you use ichat? ichat is the chat client for AIM on a mac. they show icons next to the people that you can audio or video chat with. it shows a video camera next to those who you can mutually video chat with. if you click the icon, it makes a video chat. if you were looking to use a service other than AIM, i suggest meebo.com. you just hit the webcam icon once chatting with someone and you are ready to go (assuming you have the isight webcam in your macbook).
hope this helps ;-)

Macbook Video Chat Problems!


My Yahoo screen name is "iknowapple", feel free to IM me to test your video. 
There is one very simple answer to the Mac to PC problem, get Windows for your Mac with VMware. (Parallels does not support iSight.)
What program are you using to video chat with the PC? I haven't seen any problems using Yahoo between Mac's and PC's. If you are using Yahoo and you're having problems, check your Yahoo video settings.

Broadband will work better and smoother for sure. If the cam has a mic, then it would work for almost any chat system you can get. You will get both video and audio.
