I need a web camera for my MIL
Posted by: bazookaman

She has a G4 ibook with a busted mic.

So I need a video/web cam with a built in mic that she can primarily use with Skype. Is there such a thing? and if so, is there such a thing that is mac compatible? And I mean REALLY compatible. Something i can set up for her once and never have to mess with it again.

Right now we have this convoluted setup that requires plugging and unplugging, launching and relaunching etc. Which is fine since I'm down the road. But with her moving to the UK, I need something MIL proof.

There were numerous reports of the XBox 360 camera working fine with Macs

$35-$40

If her computer is running 10.4.9 or later, all she needs is a UVC-compliant webcam.

What is wrong with the Apple iSight? There are tons of them on ebay.

I bought this recently when my iSight failed. Works fine right out of the box. Not quite the quality of the iSight, does the job well for iChat, Skype, whatever.

Requires USB 2, which you need to have anyway to get good video performance.

I think I will just put an OUT OF ORDER
sticker on my head and call it a day.
