Streaming/Webcam with the R5C


Hey, everyone!  New to this community, and I'm already asking for help.  I just got my R5C, and I was hoping to use it as a webcam.  I downloaded the software for the normal R5 since there wasn't an R5C option available.  It didn't work.  Am I missing something dumb?  Or do I just need to wait until Canon adds that to the list of camera that are webcam utility available?  I appreciate any advice on this.  Thanks!


Yes, that’s correct. Which is why, when setting up the eos webcam software the r5c isn’t an option. 


Shouldn't be anything special that you need to do once you enable the correct usb mode

I haven't used my R5C as a webcam, but I believe it defaults to a standard output.  See the reference in the image I posted above.
