i tried working with multiple ps3eye cams on OSX but did not succeed.
it should work- maybe someone has a solution for that,
i switched to linux in the end, where multiple cams of the same type aren't
a problem at all :)
maybe it works with osx when using multiple instances of pd...this was not an option for me.
one thing you should take care of, at least, that is what i discovered:
due to the bandwidth the cameras take, you can just run 2 cams on one USB2.0 controller at the same
time, otherwise you will end up with a very jittered images.

Betreff: [PD] four PS3 Eye on Mac Pro and Pd-ext and GEM


I'm going to work on a Mac Pro with MacOsX.6.7 and the latest stable
Pd-extended 0.42.5.
I would like to connect four PS3 Eye on this computer and use GEM with
pix_video to read these four devices in four instance of Pd (=> one camera
per instance of pd). I will use Macam driver (or something else ?)
Is it easy to get each camera working in the same time on this system ? Do
you have experience in this area ?
Thanx for help.
