So I recently bought an XA11 in order to both film and live stream lessons for my students. The reviews online from multiple sources indicated I would be able to hook this camera up to my computer in order to record video directly to the computer using OBS.
Previous cameras have been Plug-N-Play, the XA11 does not appear to be. How do you connect this camera to a lop top in order to record video directly onto that lap top, using programs like OSB?
I spent hours scouring forums and the user manual and have not found the answer yet. Thanks in advance!

In most cases you would need a USB video capture device with an HDMI input to capture the live video from the camcorder. Most computers have HDMI ports but they are usually HDMI output only and would not accept an incoming signal. With a USB video capture device OBS should recognize the camcorder as a USB video input. For the XA11 you would want a capture device which can read a 1080 60i signal from HDMI.
