Greetings everyone. I have a Canon 500D camera. I want to use it as a webcam. I connected the connections to the computer with the capture card. I reflect instantly. However, the machine turns itself off after 30 or 40 minutes. I press the shutter button halfway and the image comes back. I see that the battery is half charged. Please support me as to what the reason is.

Reset the camera back to factory defaults. Check to see if your camera is supported. Supported cameras should be in video mode.

That guy is bad science. He advocates installing ML, so that you can use the EOS Webcam Utility with older, unsupported cameras. He also promotes the idea of using the HDMI output of the camera, which the Webcam Utility does not detect or recognize.
Finally, when he said that the camera clears its settings when you turn it off, but you can retain your settings by saving them to the "My Menu" option, I was convinced the guy has no clue what he is talking about.
