Been playing with this program and when you get it working it works, sorta. First issue is exotic resolutions. When selecting one it does not work correctly and looks to just magnify the image rather than create the proper resolution chosen. That’s ding one. Ding two is when you disconnect and the computer goes to sleep you loose the ability to restart just by plugging your usb back in. I am running the most current software on my MacBook Pro. My Sony camera works great with the Blackmagic ultra studio mini recorder. So for now it’s a broken bit of software to allow the iPhone to be used reliably for live video streaming. Ding one I can live with, not so with ding two.

I use OBS to make videos and I had bought a web cam for it. But the image was not sharp and the biggest issue was that green screening in OBS was a nightmare. Getting a good result was extremely fickle requiring filter adjustment depending time of day and outside light coming in. I always assumed OBS chromakey filter just was not that good. After reading about this app I decided to give it a try. It took just minutes to set up and get a video feed. Wow! the picture from an iPhone really is a magnitude of order better than a good webcam! Then I decided to try the chromakey filter........as soon as I turned on the filter it was perfect! The default settings have a great image. No need to spend 5 minutes tweaking the filter settings! I really really did not want to spend 15 bucks for the App fearing it would not be any better than what I had with the webcam. But it turns out this was money well spent! Installation really was a breeze, I use a USB connection. Can’t speak for the WiFi connection. But it was very quick and simple and the improvements in image quality were huge!

Finally! Somebody did it. We can finally use the iPhone as a webcam via cable for PC! I rather support and continue using this app than some weird unknown software that only works over the WiFi to be able to use my iPhones or the spare older iPhones that you have lying around as a webcam. This app from what I can gather is fairly new and it obviously needs some work but it does what it says it does. Yes, they are some really low reviews and some sound like they’re children but like I said this apps is going through the process of becoming something great so... Give it time, support, and help by writing to the developer any bugs you come across and he will most likely address it faster with updates!

It works great. You can’t beat the quality and the price either. It’s clear and it’s super easy to use. I’m using it on my Windows 10 build. Only issue I ran into was installing iTunes on my computer first. It didn’t connect properly until I install iTunes. This is actually an Apple issue and not the OBS Cam App. I was hesitant to get this because of the reviews, but I don’t see any of those complaints using this. This is a must if you want to get into streaming or recording using OBS.

I see other reviews of people who can’t get this to work, but it does. I was a little confused at first because it does take several steps to set this up: 1. Buy the app 2. Have iTunes installed and used at least once. 3. Install OBS 4. Get the OBS iOS camera source plugin from the app website and install with OBS closed 5. Plug in your iOS camera and launch OBS (your app will say “USB: Waiting for connection” until the last step) 6. Add “iOS Camera” (not to be confused with video capture device) 7. Open settings for iOS camera in OBS and choose your device 8. Choose Refresh Devices/Reconnect to Device On a side note, the live feed doesn’t seem to work well with anything past 1080p, but neither do the $200 webcams you would have to buy instead. Keep working on the app it’s great, thanks!

Camera for OBS Studio Description
1652 chars

If you've ever wanted to use your iPhone camera as a video & audio input to stream using OBS Studio, we've got you covered. We've tried all the apps that let you do it over WiFi, but they're not

fast enough, so we also allow you to use a wired USB connection.

QUALITY VIDEO
Your iPhone/iPad camera's are good, really good. In fact, there’s no comparison between the highly recommended streaming webcam, the Logitech C922 HD Pro and the iPhone 6 Camera. Stream Landscape or Portrait video.

AUDIO
If you don't have a separate mic for your streaming setup, you can now use the microphone on your iOS device to stream audio & video.

FRONT CAMERA
Stream a selfie with the front camera support. Switch anytime during the stream with the familiar camera switch button.

TAP TO FOCUS, PINCH TO ZOOM
Controls just like you're used to from the Camera app.

LOW LATENCY
Stream video over a wired USB connection. This avoids the issue of delay over wifi, as many other solutions suffer from. This is just as fast as a USB webcam!

USB & WIFI
Choose the connection type. If you want low latency, use USB, if you'd like portability then use WiFi. WiFi is done using the NewTek™ NDI® protocol, so you can use Camera for OBS Studio with any NewTek™ NDI® compatible receiver.

MULTIPLE DEVICES
If you're lucky enough to own multiple iOS devices, use them together and produce a multi-camera stream.

MAC AND PC
Supports OBS Studio running on macOS and Windows.

You will need to install the OBS Studio iOS Camera Plugin from our website, or use an NDI compatible receiver to use this app.
