Nice large "mirror." Does what it claims.

This is great. It does what it says! And it does it well -- in fact, the image is better than that of the iChat video preview.

You do not necessarily need an iSight camera. This works with ANY FireWire camera. Excellent. Needs to be size adjustable, if that is possible in a widget.

Kills iChat video capability. Had to remove it from the dashboard b4 I could video chat in iCAV.

nice, but needs one HUGE improvement:
it needs to pause when the dashboard is hidden. It sucks up a large amount of processor power, even when not being used.

it is not possible to prevent it from sucking cpu or block iChat. SImply close it with option-click if you need iChat. Then bring it up next time you need it. (Developer comment)

Yeah, I would like this to be re-sizable. It's kinda big on my screen.

The only problem with this really nifty program - it doesn't mirror. It displays a camera view, as opposed to a mirror view. Try it - when you lift your right hand to your face a hand should rise on the right hand-side of the mirror.

It's a nifty app though.

DaMacGuy, thanks for pointing it out! Of course it should be a mirror image, that was the whole point. Something happened, fixed now. /Peter, Balooba

It's actually easy to pause the video. Unload the QT movie using a handler for widget.onhide and load it back up in a widget.onshow handler.
