Create unmirrored Photo Booth movies
Authored by: macosnoob on Jan 30, '10 02:17:29PM

Snow Leopard's Photo Booth (3.x) cannot be modified due to Apple's code-signing the application. Nor will Leopard's Photo Booth (2.x) run under Snow Leopard. However, Leopard's Photo Booth (2.x) can be modified to run under Snow Leopard by altering two keys in the application under Contents >> Info.plist. In Info.plist, change CFBundleShortVersionString from 2.0.3 to 3.0.1 and CFBundleVersion from 77 to 117 to create a version of Photo Booth (2.x) that runs under Snow Leopard--and that can then be further modified for unmirrored Photo Booth movies as described in the original hint. (Making these same plist alterations to CFBundleShortVersionString and CFBundleVersion in Contents >> version.plist doesn't appear to make any difference one way or the other, though for consistency and perhaps stability one may also want to alter those two keys in version.plist, as well as version.plist's SourceVersion key from 770000 to 1170000.)

Note that if you run both PB 2 and PB 3, the photo tray that appears in PB will reflect only photos and movies created by the version of PB used to make them. However, all photo and movies, regardless of the PB version used, will be found in Pictures >> Photo Booth.
