I have same model, just bought it recently , I bought it for livestreaming dj sets , I use obs streaming software and I downloaded all the various eos software , I use it with the usb lead but found it easier using the mini hdmi to normal hdmi lead , if using the hdmi lead you'll need to purchase a video capture card , I bought a little dongle style one , cheap around £10 , it works a treat ...the 2000d is limited I think to 30 min video recording, but I've since read uf you the the sd card out it solves the issue .. hope this helps .nick UK

There is an app called "Intervalometer for Canon" on the app store, which I have used for triggering my M50 at intervals.
