Rebel T7 Shutter Resets While Live-streaming

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.

Thank you all for your responses. I have not found an answer to my original question, but I did find a solution to the problem. I returned the EOS Rebel T7 to the store and bought a better camera.

If, by "Live Streaming", you are talking about shooting video, I think, by some international standard, videos are limited to 29:59, and then the video shooting stops.

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.

I am using the EOS webcam utility in conjunction with OBS Studio 27.1.3 (mac) and the video quality is excellent for my purposes except that the shutter resets every 30 minutes or so, so my live video feed is interrupted for approximately 2 seconds every 30 minutes.
