This makes OBS go from good to GREAT !

This app is what OBS needed! It’s an unbeatable value for the price! Your phone already has the best quality webcam available,
and now it can be used as such in your stream for 1/10th the cost of a regular one. I would buy this app twice ! I’m rating it 5
stars only because there aren’t more.

Works great!

I have been using OBS camera to live stream on YouTube. It really works great and I’ve gotten a lot of compliments on the
quality of my stream. I wanted to have the same experience with Reddit streaming, which is based on OBS as well. The developer was
very helpful in pointing me to a very simple fi

I’m generally pleased ... but the lag while on using a band-new iPhone 12 and brand-new MacBook Pro is still an issue ... I hope
future updates make wired connections closer to real-time.

It would be great if we could:
- Lock landscape orientation directly from the app
- Keep streaming when leaving the app

Customer service helped me out.

I had a problem getting my iPhone to connect by usb. Customer service sent me a list of things to try. I had to reset the network
settings and now it works perfectly. Using an iPhone as a camera is much better than my webcams.

Works Wonderfully!

I was having an issue with my computer not recognizing my phone, until I read through the instructions on the website!
I needed to install and run iTunes since I was running Windows, and it ended up working! The app is running perfectly, and I
can’t wait to stream with it!

I’ve been tweaking my OBS setup for a month now and getting everything in order. As a Mac user it’s been a task to try and
find plugins and things that work with the Native Apple OS. OBS Camera makes it all worth it. The Logitech C922 “Pro Stream”
is $100 for quality that is frankly....trash. With O

Works well but a bit confusing

I use this with OBS to use my iPhone as a webcam. The instructions on the site are very clear but the camera will only work when
iTunes is open. I’m not entirely sure if there is a way around this. I will be testing more options to see if I can find a
proper explanation.

Does what it says

This app is pretty good at doing what it says it can do. I’ve tried many paid and free apps that claim to be web cam solutions
inside OBS. I’ve also worked with NDI and NDI-Hx. I think the only app that gives more camera control is Camo which is an
annual price of 39.99 (at the time of this review)

Help with an update issue

I’ve been using OBS for live streaming my fitness platform for the last couple months and absolutely love it!

About 3 weeks ago, after an update, the voice settings were off and somehow my voice tone was lowered significantly. I had no idea
what was going on and tried everything on my end to fix it

It works!

I’ve been using this app to use my iPad Pro and my iPhone SE as cameras for livestreaming. It works very smooth with OBS. I’m

'Works well, but could use some more options.'

'Love the app and it works well. I sometimes have issues connecting or the video freezing, but I’m not sure if it’s the app,
cable, computer, or OBS application. But connecting and turning things on in different orders usually solve the problem. Overall,
