My boyfriend and I bought an Macally IceCam for use with skype and we are having problems setting it up, uploading the driver and getting skype to recognize the camera. He has an ibook G4 with OSX on it. He tried to load the mac OSX driver, but it didn't seem to work. He has tried to install several times, but each time when it says that the installation is complete, when he tries to open the monitor folder nothing happens. Also, he cannot eject the installation disc because it says it is still in use even after the installation is complete. And then ofcourse skype did not recognize the camera.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
Hello all, we supply Macally Icecams through our company and have done so for many years. The camera works absolutely fine with Skype. Unfortunately Skype do not make it easy for people to understand how, so we wrote a user friendly blog about it and it can be viewed here: http://blogs.ebay.com/skinnywolf_online/entry/Webcams-for-Mac-Users-The-best-VoIP-Interfaces-t/_W0QQidZ189277018

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.
Go to TOOLS, then OPTIONS, and click on AudioSettings and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card. Then click on the Video Settings. The camera if installed properly will come up and show a picture. Then on the bottom of the page click on Save.
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.
