Unfortunately, they are not common, but here are three that I know of:
And yes, they work in M8. Here's what you do(you need Quicktime Pro): copy the rtsp link and open Quicktime. Open new URL (or apple-U) and paste in the link. Once you see an image, save the file (don't try to export but make sure you 'Save as self contained'). Next, drop the resulting movie file into M8 and off you go.
I've been wanting to use live webcams in a performance for a while, but as you'll see, these cams are merely ok, not superb. It's too bad M8 can't take a stream from a windoze media cam (via the Flip4Mac plugin) as I've got tons of nice links to those. One day perhaps...
P.S. When I click on the steam links above directly from Firefox, it tried to launch RealPlayer to handle them... just copy and paste into Qtime.
