The issues you are describing might have another cause, unrelated to the version of the webcam utility you are using, While OBS is not oficially supported, the others you mentioned (Zoom and Skype) are. It sounds like an issue with your system environment, not the utility.
Consider resolvng these issues first, before trying to get the camera to work with an unsupported application. Since you are using the "official" release, I assume this is windows as MAC is still in beta.
