Get your UVC webcam working as Apple iSight (Universal Video Camera WebCam fix)

Just edit the 3 vendorId and productId entries to match your webcam.
Install the driver in /S/L/E.
You now have your UVC class webcam working as if it was an iSight...
NOTE: an UVC webcam is an Universal Video Camera webcam, it only works for this kind of devices (as the iSight is an UVC cam).
An example of a UVC webcam is the Asus UVC 2M WebCam.

Just wanted to add a quick THANK YOU.
Your Kexts have become one of the main reasons for me to check the New Releases & Updates section.
Great work! Never been disappointed by your releases...

UVC cam problem


I used your kext. Did all the ID substitutions, but my UVC camera still didn't work, just as before. (I though that maybe your driver accounted for the problem I'm about to describe)
I must state that before kexting, it was already recognized by system profiler with original ID's and manuf. name (Chicony). I was able to make it work by using camtwist, limiting it's resol. (320x240) (and for the matter flip it upside down, 'cose it comes mounted that way from factory OEM).
With your kext, everything is the same. It works as I described before.

What I wanted to ask of you, is if it's possible in anyway to limit the resolution in your kext, or any other kext. (If you put a switch in there for the upside down problem, I'm your fan, else I'm thankful )

More details:
(There's a whole lot of people with this problem)

Look at the forum

In essence: enter your camera's id's (vendor & product)
converted from hex to decimal

Logitech 9500

VENDOR (hex) 0x046d =1133 (dec)

ID (hex) 0x08ce = 2254 (dec)

Change the value for idProduct and idVendor in the category

IOKitpersonality -->
--> FakeBuilt-In iSight Device
--> FakeBuilt-In iSight Device Interface A
--> FakeBuilt-In iSight Device Interface B

Change the entries in these categories only, not the sub-sub categories!
