January 24 – Important Update
An updated solution was posted on Adobe’s site, which will resolve any problems you are having with your webcam on Mac computers. Here’s what you need to do:
1. Go to http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/ .
2. Download the new Adobe Flash Player (Universal Binary for Macs | 5.54 MB)
With the latest release of Flash Player, the cameras of many Mac users have become dysfunctional and can’t be accesses with Flash applications, which is exactly what Rounds is based on. After extensive research, we learned that this usually happens due to ManyCam or Google Camera adapters present.
To resolve the problem you must remove all component files that contain “Google Camera” or “ManyCam” from the /Library/QuickTime/ folder. This will allow the iSight (and other malfunctioning cameras) to work properly again with Flash applications. If the files aren’t found in the above folder, they may be hiding in /Library/Application Support/Google/ folder. After removing these files, please restart your browser before checking again.
Here’s a more detailed tutorial on how to remove these files:
Please ask our team for assistance if necessary, as removing system files may have undesirable effects on the system. With that said, the above procedure is fairly simple and shouldn’t cause any issues whatsoever.
