Greetings,
I have a brand new MACBook Pro, and I installed Yahoo for MAC 3.0, the latest build.  When giving permission to view my webcam, it starts up ok, but after 15-20 seconds, the other end says it stops and tells them that they don't have permission to see my cam.  So, I send them the permission to view my cam again, and the error happens again.

This is continuous.  I do not know enough about MAC's to trouble shoot....help?

I am using the isight( I think that's what's its called), the webcam embedded in the computer.  as far as I can tell, the drivers are loaded properly.

Have you tried with an older version of Yahoo! for Mac? Sometimes latest builds aren't very stable or might contain bugs.

We tried that, but it ended up being the network.  Thanks.
