Is there any way to stop my Rebel T7 from resetting the shutter during a live stream? It sounds like the camera is taking a picture about once every 30 minutes which interrupts my video feed.
Note: I am using an a/c adapter for power and USB cable for video, so battery life and HDMI clean out are not the issue.

I was not speaking of shooting video. I was referring to using my camera as a webcam plugged directly into my computer for live streaming. This camera is advertised as having this functionality, and it does do it very well except that the shutter resets every 30 minutes or so, so my live feed is interrupted for approximately 2 seconds every 30 minutes.
Are you using the EOS Webcam Utility? It is supposed to be able to circumvent the 30 minute video time limit, but Canon states some older cameras may still be limited. The T7 is one of the most basic entry level cameras, so it may still suffer the time limit.
