Canon VIXIA HF20 with EOS Webcam Utility for Windows 10

I wanted to use my Canon VIXIA HF20 for video conferencing. I have been reading the web pages that surface. Many of them are simply duplicates of each other, but one pointed me to EOS Webcam Utility for Windows 10. When I went to the page to download drivers, there was none for the HF20. I could use one of my EOS bodies, but I want to use the HF20 because it is so much smaller. I am just getting started on this path, so don't know much about it. I am disappointed with my laptop camera, and want to use something better.

 

Any advice on how to use the HF20?

Hi there,

 

I can confirm that the EOS Webcam Utility is only for the EOS cameras listed on its page. With your HF20 you would likely need to use a USB capture device and the camera's HDMI output to get a live image. The USB capture devices I've used in the past usually don't need a driver and will just show up as a video input in your webconferencing software.
