[etoys-dev] Camera does not work with OSX 10.9.2

Hi Steve,

I am not a Mac user but I do work with the Squeak VM so I would like to
help if I can.

Just for my understanding - the camera works on older versions of OSX, but
not on your OSX 10.9.2, is that correct?

The camera plugin, which is required for using the camera in Etoys, was
added to the Mac VM after the VM was originally built. The plugin was
compiled somewhat differently from the other plugins in the VM, which may
account for it working on one version of OS X and not on another.

If that is the case, then we may need to find a volunteer to rebuild the
VM with all necessary plugins included. I am not a Mac expert at all, but
I think that is the likely source of the difficulty.

Unfortunately we have been short handed on Mac support for the VM, but if
you can confirm that this is the kind of problem that you are seeing, I
can put out a call for help on the vm-dev list and see if we can find a
volunteer do the necessary update.
