Is the webcam showing up if you go into your Character Animator preferences? If you have other inputs like internal mics, do they work?
We have had some issues in the past with this webcam and the Mac. See the threads at:
Some users were able to fix things by updating drivers or disabling other programs, but your mileage may vary.
No audio no matter what I tried. Sending back the webcam. Any other suggestions for webcams?
I've only ever used the built-in Macbook Pro one, personally. In other threads I've seen the HP HD4310 mentioned. If audio quality is important, though, you may want to look into external USB mics as well regardless - I use a CAD u37 mic for all our videos, for example.
Thanks. I'll check it out.
The C920 has great video quality, but very bad audio quality. On top of that, it only supports sample rates of 32k and below. On the Mac, Apple's onboard audio only supports 44.1 and above, so we can't match the input and the output sample rates.
There is a workaround you can do. You can create an aggregate device with the C920 as the input and the Mac output as the output.
That said, I recommend a dedicated microphone or audio interface. I haven't found a webcam with sufficiently good audio yet.
