Well,
if this driver doesn't work, you are probably out of luck. I can recommend Logitech USB cams which work out of the box.

Why do you want to use a third arty camera with your MBP?  Is there a problem with your built-in camera?

Hello,
it's easy. Unplug your camera if it's plugged already. Download the driver and let the disc image mount on the Desktop.

Make the window bigger if the folder named "drag component into here" is not visible

drag the file macam.component over the icon of "drag component into here" folder

fill your password in the authentication dialog

plug your camera

Double-click macam application to test it
