Macam is a package that enables you to use several USB webcams with Mac OS X. For a list of supported cameras, see this page.

What's New

Version 0.9.2 adds support for a number of webcams. In particluar the PS3 Eye, which requires USB2, but has a phenomenal picture. Many other webcams have been added, all the cameras from the gspca project should work (although no guarantees are provided). There is better support for Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard), as the NSLock console warning messages should be gone. The driver for the PAC207 has been improved more...

Requirements

Mac OS X 10.3.9 or later

Macam has not been updated in four years. Does not work in newer versions of OS X with newer cameras. Of course, unlike some other apps these days, this one is free to try, so you can at least test it for yourself. But it appears development has long since been abandoned, even though the app is still available. YMMV

Years ago, my girlfriend bought a Concord EyeQ webcam for her Windows machine so that she could do webcam chats with me on Yahoo Messenger while she was in college. I was on OS9 (actually, probably OS 8.6, at that time) and didn't have a cam, and the Concord never worked with my OS9 installation.

Some eight years later, I came across this camera in a box somewhere. Hadn't looked at it in years, but I figured what the hell. So I plugged it into my OSX 10.6-equipped MacBook, and no go... obviously, it's an elderly webcam and didn't support Mac in the first place, why would it support OSX? On a whim, I installed macam and instantaneously, it showed up in Yahoo Messenger, and using the macam application, I was able to use it to take pictures.

Still unsure if there's a way to get at the images stored on the internal memory (if there are any), but for a piece of free software that I installed on a whim, macam wildly exceeded my expectations.

Doesn't work with MS LifeCam NX-6000 :( Macam says the cam is not connected. I'm using the latest Leopard (10.5.6) on a MacPro. Applications like PhotoBooth and Skype are working ok by the OS, but the picture quality needs tuning badly. The Picture is much overbright and lacks color (the white balance is way off). Please developer try to make macam work with nx-6000.

Works great with a USB PS3 HD Eye on my G4 MDD 1.42, but only generates a black screen on my G5 quad ... Of course I wanted the cam for the G5. I also tried a Logitech cam on the G5 with same result and based on web searches (that I did after I bought the cam) Macam doesn't work on the G5 quad.

I bought a Trust WB-3400 webcam in order to use it with a Mac Mini G4.
I installed the driver, the IChatUSBCam software, but the cam is not recognized.
Only the microphone works.
Can someone help me?

...still awaiting for Macam to support the Philips SPC 610NC.

The SPC 610NC from Philips is a beautiful, tiny webcam specifically designed for notebooks.

version 0.9 (and above) still doesn't work with my Ezonics camera (based on a Sonics one)

Fortunatelly, I found a driver on Internet called SN9C102 Driver OSX 1.0.dmg that works perfectlly.
