In this crazy year we have all been taking our churches online. Back in March 2020 it was nigh on impossible to buy a webcam – they were sold out! I bought one that still hadn’t arrived 8 weeks later, got a refund and then it arrived and it was so poor quality it went in the bin anyway.
I tried a couple of the free apps to turn my iPhone into webcam. Most of them were truly awful. By relying on wifi there was a lot of latency – delay. But worse the audio was out of sync with the video which is really distracting.
So I finally bit the bullet and bought Camera for OBS – which cost me GBP £15.99. I’m so glad I did. It is perfect! It needed a plugin download for OBS which was a breeze to install. The documentation to do that in the link above was a breeze to follow and it worked first time.
I’ve tested it on my Mac and it worked well. We livestream using our brand new Huawei Matebook 14 – which has been a game changer as it is powerful enough to do the job well. It took a little more setting up as on a Windows PC you need to install iTunes as well as the OBS camera plugin software. We live-streamed with it today and I’m very happy with the quality difference
