This guide shows you how to set up your USB video capture device on a Mac. If you have a Windows PC, please follow this guide instead.


Please note, if you have the latest version of MacOS - Big Sur - you will need to use OBS Studio instead; follow the first half of this guide to get it set up.


For all other versions of MacOS you first need to download the video capture software using the link below:

https://apps.apple.com/gb/app/debut-video-capture-software/id913592132?mt=12

Once you've downloaded it you will be prompted to install Debut, once this is downloaded, install it and then you can open the programme using the Debut icon.           

Click on the webcam icon, and the live feed of the camera should now display.

If this doesn't work, please go to Preferences, then Video. Under webcam select 'AV to USB'. Now go to Audio and select the same thing.

If this still doesn't work please try using the device in a different USB port on your Mac.
