    Will the built-in EyeSight cam on the MacBookPro 15.4 be supported?
    Or is it already and I'm just not accessing it properly?
    Thanks.

    Probably not. It's not even supported in Windows XP running via Boot Camp.

    The built-in iSight is a USB device, so once USB support is added to Parallels Workstation, it's theoretically possible, but Apple will need to release the drivers, or a 3rd party will need to develop them.

    Couldn't they write a webcam driver that just forwarded everything through parallels instead of letting Windows access the eyesight directly? Another option in the parallels tools... just an idea.

    The Built-In iSight is supported in Bootcamp on Windows XP. It was added to a recent version of Bootcamp.

    It works fine in BootCamp with Skype, MSN (Live Mess) SightSpeed etc...

    I also got it to work in my XP VM until I upgraded to BETA 3036...
