I noticed that a few people are having problems with the quickcam for the
mac and sound. I was wondering, is it possible that because of the way the
QC is connected that it requires more processing time to deliver an image
that a video capture board would (i assume that audio
compression/decompression requires quite a bit also)? if this is so, it
might explain something...I know very little about Mac's or the QuickCam,
but I do know about interrupts, processor latency, and CLI/STI's..., so if I
am dead wrong, don't flame me, just correct me, please, I am sensitive to
