iCubie USB Webcam Support

iCubie in iMovie 2011's Capture Window

By default, iMovie 2011's capture window will only acknowledge certain webcams. To change this:

Quit iMovie.

Open the Terminal app, which is in Applications/Utilities.

Copy and paste this line into the Terminal window and press return:

defaults write com.apple.iMovieApp allowUnsupportedWebcams -bool YES

Re-open iMovie, and you should now see the iCubie listed.

Sorry, but this does not appear to work in the new iMovie 10.x.
