Yes.

You have (1) an old version of CU-SeeMe/Mac or (2) the README has not been
updated. Current versions know and love the QuickCam.

Doesn't exist, because it's not needed.

>Q: Is anyone using Connectix's QuickCam?

Yes. http://www.indstate.edu/msattler/sci-tech/comp/hardware/quickcam.html
has a write-up on the QuickCam plus pointers to other people's QC web
