There is several version of this driver depending on driver version or host architecture

to properly extract the firmware.

Any AppleUSBVideoSupport file starting with those shipped with iMac G5 iSight must work.
If not, please report unknown AppleUSBVideoSupport at bugreport mail address with machine
type and OS X version.

`-d' `--output-directory' The directory where to output the firmware. Defaults to

`-f' `--output-filename' The output firmware name. Defaults to isight.fw
