It tells me that there are no cameras available. I want to use my isight, I'm running Mac OS X 10.6.8, I really want this to work it looks like such fun.

    Are you using a Mac with a build-in iSight? See

    If not, try pressing F3 to display camera settings.

    My mac does have a built in isight. It's the only webcam I have. I tried pressing f3 and unchecking the default camera, still no luck. I also tried turning on photobooth so I know the isight is on.

    You can try unchecking or checking the default camera setting, and restart
    Sparkbooth. Press F1 to display settings, select Options tab, and select
    "Other" from the list, and Uncheck or check "Use Default Camera".
