I can't successfully link openCV the libraries needed for kinect and make it work in my MacBook running Lion. I've tried installing via macports+openni but haven't been successful. In previous attempts I've been able to use openCV with the iSight camera on my MacBook but not being able to get captures from USB web cams. Before I spend more time banging my head against the wall, can somebody tell me there is hope and this can be done and then maybe suggest how to do it? Thanks.

So, when it comes to using openCV with Kinect, I haven't had much luck on my mac. But I've only begun trying. To install, openCV I compiled the source and setup the correct flags, make sure you do that as well to get openni support.
