Hi all,

I have found some driver software for the Sony PS3 EYE camera (, usable on OS X 10.10.5. Examples to use that driver with Cinder or OpenFrameworks can be found on that github account, too. (I ran another openframeworks example provided at

Can you give some advice on what to do in order to use that (usb2) camera driver software with (python) opencv? E.g. do I need to somehow recompile opencv (currently I'm just using the python34 variant provided by macports)?

Thanks in advance for any pointers,
