Getting Started with the OBS Studio iOS Camera Plugin
Let’s get you up and running so you can start your stream! All going well, this will take less than 5 minutes.
I would recommend following the steps of downloading and installing the iOS Camera plugin for OBS Studio before buying the iOS App.
1. Download the iOS Camera Plugin for OBS Studio
2. Verify that the iOS Camera Plugin is installed correctly
Open OBS Studio and add a new iOS Camera source:
If you do not see the iOS Camera source, please see this FAQs about this.
If you cannot find the OBS Studio application, then make sure you have also installed it. You can download OBS Studio from topdeblogs.com/
3. Download and install the iOS App
Please make sure that you have a device that is known to work well before downloading. What iOS hardware do I need?.
4. Connect to your Device
For best results, before starting make sure that your iOS device is disconnected and the Camera app closed. There is a video of me running through these steps at the bottom if that’s more your style – though I still recommend reading the steps below too.
Make sure your iOS Device is unplugged to begin.
Open OBS Studio on your computer.
Add a new “iOS Camera” source to your scene (only if there isn’t one there from Step 2)
Open the Camera for OBS Studio App on your iPhone.
Confirm that the USB output is selected in the apps’ output settings. (it is by default)
Connect your iOS device to your computer using the lightning cable it came with.
If at this point it doesn’t automatically connect, tap the refresh devices button and then select your device in the list.
You will now see your video!
Use your iOS device as a webcam and stream your heart out! 😃
Plugging in your iOS device with the app running automatically connects to OBS Studio when using a single device.
If you’re more the visual type, I recorded a short video where I ummm and arrrr, and eventually connect my device! 😅 Before recording I did install the plugin for OBS Studio (links are above).
