    Great Software, Thanks. Now I can recycle all those webcams as part of my CCTV system. I was successful using both Quickier.App (Apple Mac App Store) and Hue WebCam Monitor (Softpedia dot com). Prefer the Quickier.app. installed on MacBook Pro and Mac Mini running Mavericks. Now, if I can watch the video feed over Wifi on my iPhone or iPad, I'll be golden. Any Ideas?

    Latest build from 2009? Thus sadly not working under Mountain Lion. As others said, Macam displays one still image from the camera when hitting Play, and crashes when trying to record video.

    THIS CAN WORK FOLKS…. READ THIS FURTHER FOR HOW…. Usually works for me with Mountain Lion 10.8.3 on Mac Mini (2.3 GHz Intel Core i5)….. Using a Creative Labs Webcam Vista... Product ID: 0x405f Vendor ID: 0x041e (Creative Labs) amongst others…. The secret here is not to bother usinge the horribly unstable and non-working Macam.app to do anything! . . . Just install these drivers (specifically the Macam.component) and then go straight to using your cam with Quicktime 7.x…. (Don't forget to set it to your camera in Quicktime 7 preferences first.) Process that works: Install all Macam v0.9.2 software as normal. Launch Macam only once to initialize the component drivers and then quit it and never use it again. Restart your computer. Then use Quicktime 7.x ONLY to use your webcam live. Macam.app will only take a snapshot and does not any longer support live video under the current OS. Macam when launched will also seize access to the camera so Quicktime can not use it after Macam is launched, so don't launch it. Just use QuickTime to leverage the drivers that Macam installed which still work!!! The problem with this is you can not adjust the camera feed for color saturation, brightness, etc…
