Hello, anyone know how to do a webcam over wifi without having to connect any cables to the computer? I'm trying to do a livestream with a wireless webcam using the Canon EOS Rebel T8i. I use the OBS livestream application to stream, can anyone help me?

The camera cannot do it.  There is no work around.  It is simply unable to do it.

So if I can't stream over wifi, what equipment would I need to stream with OBS? Like what cables would I need?

Canon has introduced the EOS Webcam Utility, which is not the same as using an actual HDMI video oiutput.

Canon has a number of cameras that have clean HDMI output.  They are listed at the bottom of the page.  T8i is not one of them.

The T8i IS a listed camera. The attached screen clip was just captured from the website you referenced.

Thanks, pal.  That was a good catch.

 

BTW, I was clearly referring to cameras with clean HDMI output, NOT cameras supported by the WebCam Utility.
