There is no sound.  For a host of technical reasons, I seriously doubt if there ever will be.  

 

The Webcam Utility is "designed" to replace the "webcam" built into nearly every laptop today.  Computers had mic inputs, and later built-in microphones long beffore they put live video cameras into them.  They are totally independent devices.


I guess because most webcams include a microphone, people are going to be confused by this. The canon documentation is clear of course, but still...

I have used this with my Canon 7D MkII and a Canon EOS M50 without issue in Skype and ZOOM.  People are blown away by how my video looks even when scalled down to lower resolutions. 

 

My primary video application at work is BlueJeans and, unfortunately, the EOS WebCam driver is not seen by BlueJeans at all.

 

I have found this works best if I am not using a USB hub with a high-quality USB cable.  Mic and Camera need to be plugged directly into the PC for best performance.

 

My wish list is as follows:

  • Find a way to enable audio through USB so we get better synch between audio and video.
  • Work on compatibility with BlueJeans.

BlueJeans supports "Virtual Webcams" which is what the cannon utility is. I see all the different webcam drivers i have in bluejeans, including the virtual, and "real" ones... I would suggest deleting and reinstalling Bluejeans...  it does work.. (Im in Catalina if that is relevant)

I have a T6s and running Mojave and current release works. When I have no image, one thing I do is to open QuickTime, go to New Movie Recording and select the Canon EOS Webcam. That usually enables the camera. I then open the application I want to use it with.

Odd behaviour with 15.5.5 Catalina. 

Now that I've installed Cascable, suddenly I can select EOS Webcam Utility in the zoom desktop client as well.

It works well with Canon 7D and ZOOM.
But I can not REC video with the camera itself.
Does anyonyone know if it is possible to record video (I need the video footage of the camera too) during connecting to zoom or any video conference apprication?

Hi

If you need to record you should first pipe it into OBS and then point your video conferencing app to the OBS virtual web cam which is then downstream...
