(Archived) I think evernote killed my isight

Recommended Posts

As soon as I got an invite I was taking snapshots of notes with my isight. Then last night it just stopped working and the isight isn't even recognized in the system profiler. A google search later and I had tried all suggestions in all the forums I could find and nothing worked, not once did I suspect evernote had anything to do with it. That was until today when a co-worker who I had just sent an invite came over to my office and mentioned that his isight just died while he was using evernote. Has anyone else had this happen to them?

We don't talk directly to the isight device at all ... we just make a one-line system call to Apple's "IKPictureTaker" interface, which is the same thing that happens when you take your own picture in the System Preferences in account settings.

While I could imagine OS X having a problem which makes the camera stop working, I can't think of any way that we'd be affecting that.

I did a quick search for "isight stopped working" in Google and it looks like this happens to people (who aren't running Evernote ...) pretty frequently:
