ACam Live Video

Compatible Webcams

This section helps you identify the webcam that ACam Live Video supports.

The best way to check the compatibility of your webcam is to simply download and install the ACam Live Video for Windows/Mac software.  If you see the preview video from the ACam Live Video for Windows/Mac software, then your webcam is supported.

Mac OS X

In general, ACam Live Video is compatible with the built-in iSight webcam on any version of Macbook. 

Support of external webcam (USB and Firewire) varies depending on webcam types:

1. If your webcam has native Mac supports (for example, if the webcam works with iChat on Mac OS X), it should also work with ACam Live Video.

2. If your webcam does not support Mac, there is a chance that you can still make it work using the free open-source webcam driver called Macam.  Please check their list of supported webcams. Simply download and install the driver from their website.

Please note while ACam Live Video works with the Macam driver, the performance will depend on individual driver implementation.  With certain webcam models, you might experience slow framerate/lags.  For best performance, we recommend webcams with native Mac support.

Windows

ACam Live Video supports most webcams under Windows.  To check the compatibility of your webcam, simply download and install the ACam Live Video for Windows software.  If you see the preview video from the ACam Live Video for Windows software, then your webcam is supported.
