I am looking for fake webcam solution for Mac OS 10.7.4 64bit running as a Virtual Machine.

What I tried:
ManyCam - only works with 32bit Browser and then not with all flash applications
CamCamX - crashes on startup
CamTwist - Crash

Is there any other solution out there?

I've never had a problem with CamTwist since Leopard all the way through now (10.8.1). I would suggest trying to contact the developer. Commented and not answered since you exclude it in your Question. – Jason Salaz Sep 12 '12 at 9:00
the problem occurs because , quartz extreme isn't available in MacOS Vms. I have a MacOS Server , starting several VMs for testing reasons. – Dukeatcoding Oct 10 '12 at 9:12

OS X's Quartz Extreme video processing framework and services are not available under OS X 10.7.4 when running inside any kind of Virtual Machine.

Have you tried iGlasses? It's not free but I think there is a demo.
