How to Switch between 2 webcams during a call?

I would like to be able to switch between 2 web cams during a call.  I know there's CamCamX out there but unfortunately, it seems that one of the web cams has to be an iSight (integrated Web Cam). Since I have a Mac Pro, I don't have any integrated webcams. I have two external HD ones.


Is there a software or solution out there that would allow me to switch between 2 webcams in Skype?

Have you tried CamTwist?

Skype for Mac does not have a support for switching from one web camera to another during a video call. Skype will always use the "default" web camera. 

We cannot guarantee that third party software like CamTwist works with Skype. 

If answer was helpful please give Kudos and if issue is resolved mark it with solution for other users. Thanks!
