on the macbook penryn(4th generation?) i can't report a success so far - 
running ubuntu hardy with luvcview the camera works. with pdp_v4l2 
there's only a marsy green window flickering with the initialization of 
the camera...
i compiled the pdp_v4l2 as mentioned on: 
output errors this:
VIDIOC_S_FMT error 22, Invalid argument
the format 1 message didn't change anything on the image
thanks for hints & greets
