I recently purchased a Canon Vixia hf r500. I bought it because I was told you could stream video with it. I run a weekly podcast where we stream the video live on upstream. I've been trying to figure out how to use this as a webcam but I've been left scratching my head. Is there anyone familiar with this camera and how to pull this function off?
When I plug in via USB the camera is recognized as a mass storage device but when I opened ustream the camera is not found.
Thanks for any help you can give.

You may need to use the HDMI cable and a video capture device. I'm not sure the USB port can be used for streaming video. You might be able to use the optional STV-250N Stero Video Cable and connect it to a video capture device but I don't think the quality will be near as good as using the HDMI cable. However using the optional cable and a compatible capture device would be less expensive than the HDMI option.

Did you get a solution to your question?
I have a similar problem. I bought a Vixia HF R700 and got a Black Magic Intensity Shuttle capture card.
I could not get the video signal to be transferred to my notebook. I've tried all the possible camera settings (Movie format and video quality) but I can not.
Anyone have an answer? Is it possible to transmit from the Vixia RH R700 via BlackMagic Intensity Shuttle?
I'm waiting in a way ...
