    Hi,

    I have the following Webcams
    - Creative Notebook
    - Creative Live
    - Creative NX

    I updated from CVS last night and built macam.

    Currently it detects the names of the webcams correctly.

    The screen where the image is supposed to be displayed is blank.

    Is there anything I can do to help?
    cheers
    Leo

      Hi Leo,

      There is a small change in the 0.8.6 version.
      Does it work any better for you?

      Thanks,
      hxr

      Hi hxr,

      I just updated from CVS this evening and rebuilt. The new version says 0.8.6

      Tried Cameras on iMac G5, and an iBook G4, still have a black screen with no image. The camera names are detected and displayed correctly at the bottom, except the spelling of Creative NoteBook is incorrect.

      In cameras, file ZC030xDriver.m on line 43

                 @"Creative Webcam NoteBoook", @"name", NULL],

      change to:

                 @"Creative Webcam NoteBook", @"name", NULL],

      One extra "o". It's just cosmetic.

      Is there anything I can run, or display output from, that might help.

      thanks

      Hi hxr,

      Just a quick status update.

      Using the released 0.8.6 build:

      Creative Live - recognized - shows gray hatched pattern top 1/3 of the display
      Creative Notebook - recognized - also shows gray hatched pattern top 1/3 of the display
      Creative NX - recognized - display remains black

      Using the current CVS as of yesterday.

      Creative Live - recognized - works nice clean picture, also works in photobooth with quicktime component

      Creative Notebook - recognized - works, image is blue-ish purple, with moving noise streaks (yellowish) left and right side of the image, image shows in photobooth, but color is very off, mainly blue/purple.

      Creative NX - recognized - image is good (not as nice as the Live above, but it's a cheaper camera, works in photobooth.

      thanks for all the hard work
      Leo

      After a CVS build from the changed sources last night.

      Creative Notebook also works, and colors are correct. Works in photobooth as well.

      thanks again

      As a followup, my Creative Webcam Instant (A) is now recognized, but when trying to do anything with it returns a USB Communication Error.  That's with both the 0.8.6 and the latest (June 2/06) CVS Build.

      Just as an FYI.

      Ae.

        That's too bad.

        Can you post the Console Log that you get when running the cvs-build? Hopefully this might have some actual information, something more helpful then "USB Communication Error"

        Thanks

      Here's where it gets odd.  It worked first time this morning, but after a period of time, it still throws up the USB errors.  Here's a log withone of the errors:

      It generally has sections of the "Invalid chunk!" bit followed up one of the "buffer[0]" / "New chunk" bits, and then occasionally will fail out with the errors at the very end.

      Does anyone know if the Creative Webcam Live! Pro USB 2.0 works? (with rebate, it's about half the price of the Live model!)
