I would like to display Karaoke lyrics over a live
webcam feed. This means I might need a skype (or equivalent) plugin that plays the music & lyrics, or
find some karaoke software with the ability to display lyrics over a transparent background. (That is, to have windowless karaoke display, and run the webcam feed behind it. )
All the software (I can find) to play .CDG
(karaoke lyric standard) files forces them to be played with an image background, or over a video file. [more inside]

So I finally got around to setting up my wireless video webcam
. I like the camera, I like that it's wireless and streaming video, but I can't view the video from any of my three Macs, though it works with my Dell laptop. When I try to view from my Mac (on IE, Firefox, or Safari) I get the video page but no video. [more inside]

I have a Logitech Messenger webcam and a Mac (10.3.9) and I downloaded the macam software. How do I chat with a friend who has a PC and another Logitech webcam? Should we use AIM? Yahoo? Excuse me if the question's too easy but I'm a total webcam n00b and what I found on Google is quite contradictory. Thanks!

Webcam frustration: I have a Logitech QuickCam Pro 3000, and it's driving me up the wall.
When it's not in use, the 'active' light is always on, but when I try to use it with any application, it goes off and the camera does nothing.
I've done all the logical stuff I can think of - checked the Logitech site, Googled for this error, uninstalled and reinstalled software and hardware, changed USB ports and toyed with finding a major religion to cling to, but so far nothing makes any difference... so please help me, MetaFilter friends, or Mr WebCam will become surprisingly intimate with Mr Hammer... thanks!
