    I recently bought a new MacBook Pro. When I'm on sites like RealJock, Dudesnude, or the like and want to webcam, the camera doesn't turn on. I can skype, yahoo or aim cam, but not in these webcam rooms. I think I have the latest Flash.

    Any Techies know the answer?

    Do you have the gmail chat plugin installed? I think that has been a problem with a few people on the apple support forums.

    Give it a try if you have it installed. It might solve your problem.

    I'm assuming the camera itself will work in other apps? If you turn on Photo Booth, does it work there?

    Yup, the camera works in all applications. Just have the problem when trying to web cam in a cam room on this website (or others like it)

    WoofyBoofy said I think I have the latest Flash.

    The latest Flash version 10 is buggy on Safari and Chrome. It works just fine with Internet Explorer.

    Uninstall any Google software.
