Using Canon VIXIA HFM31 as webcam?

Can a Canon VIXIA HFM31 videocam be used as webcam? Have OSB software and HDMI video capture card. OSB software recognizes the built in webcam but not the Canon.

Hi Maineman,


We can't guarantee how well accessories we don't make will work with the camera, so you may wish to check with the company who makes your HDMI capture card.


You can also check with general video forums for additional recommendations about third-party accessories:


We aren't able to provide forum support for the VIXIA HFM31, so if you need additional assistance, you may wish to contact our phone support line by calling us at (800)652-2666 on M-F from 9am-7pm EST and then select the camcorder department.
