I tried this for the first time today, it's not what I expected, the small sized live view image isn't really usable. I used my D5200 because it was handy. It is what it is...

Hey Admin!

Works fine for me with my Canon Rebel T5, but I do have one request.

Any chance a windows hotkey can be bound to 'focus' so that I can add it as a button on my streamdeck to force a re-focus? As long as the the virtual webcam application can perform the action while minimized it would work fine for my use.

Hello,

I really like this software but I don't know if it is right that I just have around 8 FPS.

Can I set this higher somehow?


Thanks in advance and best regards

Hi! Thank you for great software.
My Canon 500D outputs video in 928x616 resolution (according to liveview in digicamcontrol, and when digicamcontrol virtual webcam converts it to 1280x960 for output, result is garbled. Liveview in digicamcontrol is totally fine. Screenshot attached.

Hi!

I'm trying to use DCC as a virtual webcam with a Canon 500D (T1i), but my output to Zoom comes out interlaced. When using the Virtual webcam, the message
"Your camera Live view resolution not supported 720x480. Contact the developer to add it !!!"

Is there any way to solve this?

FWIW... I was able to talk to a real human at Zoom and had my question answered. First, having a zoom meeting with just yourself is not a good way to test video performance. Second, internet speed will be a determining factor. Bill
