Re: EOS Webcam Utility Beta Windows Software: Share Your Feedback

Hello everyone,

 

I red some questions about resolutions.

I couldn't find some settings in Zoom.

So I am wondering if not being able to use higher resolution is a limit comes from Webcam Utility or the video conferance sofware.

 

Since not so many hardware can run (monitor, GPU and CPU bound) 4K or even 2K and uploading a file is usually is slower maybe limitation is not about EOS Webcam Utility.

Does anyone know anything about this topic?

The resolution limitation is by Canon, for whatever reason - I suspect limitation of the camera processor or inefficient driver. I have a camera with USB3 so it's not an issue of USB bandwidth. The driver can't currently deliver a smooth 1024x576 30 fps video stream, I would expect smooth 1080p60 to be easily managed by this camera over USB. I'm hopeful that it will improve in a future driver release.

I checked with two more apps (Microsoft Teams and Google Meet) it worked perfectly, but just keep in mind that only one app with video capabilities can be open at the same time and EOS Utility must not be running in the background.

Hi there!

 

It seems this does not support UWP apps yet, which means the default Win10 version of Skype will not work.  You can workaround this by installing Desktop Skype however at the following link: https://www.skype.com/en/get-skype/download-skype-for-desktop/

 

It works fine with that version.

You can also do the look-see on Zoom before you start the meeting if you're the host btw.

Please Add Support for the Canon Webcam Utility on EOS M100!

Hi! I would love to see support for the Canon EOS M100 Mirrorless Camera inside the Canon Webcam Utility Beta, it would be very helpful.

 

Cheers!

Hello,

 

I just red this article

https://support.zoom.us/hc/en-us/articles/207347086-Group-HD

 

Basically it says if you want a resoluion better than 720p you have to buy premium package.

 

Are you sure your video stream sofware supports it?
