My isight is working perfectly with many application but not with skype.

The isight appers in the skype preferences (built-in isight and display isight) but I have no image and video call is'nt possible.


I've tried most of the ideas I've found about similar problems but nothing changed.

I still have a black screen with skype, even with the latest skype 6.


I also use mathematica which is supposed to be able to communicate with the isight but the program can not find the camera.


So the problem is very specific.


I'm on reinstalling all the system.


Does anybody have a similar issue?


Does anyone have any idea?



MacBook Pro, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2), 8gb ram, apple display
