Journal Journal: Fighting with my Webcam on MacOSX 5

I got an Aiptek PenCam for Christmas.

It's a PC Only webcam, but I knew at least 2 generic solutions for MacOSX integration :

I've tested macam 0.7b2, but the quicktime component crashes many applications in my config (iBook dual USB running MacOS 10.2.3 with Quicktime 6.0.2). The macam application works well, but it's useless:
The quicktime component is mandatory in order to use the webcam with webcam applications such as Yahoo Messenger.

The IOExperts USB 1.O software does not support my webcam
