If you've ever wanted to use your iPhone camera as a video & audio input to stream using OBS Studio, we've got you covered. We've tried all the apps that let you do it over WiFi, but they're not fast enough, so we also allow you to use a wired USB connection. QUALITY VIDEO Your iPhone/iPad camera's are good, really good. In fact, there’s no comparison between the highly recommended streaming webcam, the Logitech C922 HD Pro and the iPhone 6 Camera. Stream Landscape or Portrait video. AUDIO If you don't have a separate mic for your streaming setup, you can now use the microphone on your iOS device to stream audio & video. FRONT CAMERA Stream a selfie with the front camera support. Switch anytime during the stream with the familiar camera switch button. TAP TO FOCUS, PINCH TO ZOOM Controls just like you're used to from the Camera app. LOW LATENCY Stream video over a wired USB connection. This avoids the issue of delay over wifi, as many other solutions suffer from. This is just as fast as a USB webcam! USB & WIFI Choose the connection type. If you want low latency, use USB, if you'd like portability then use WiFi. WiFi is done using the NewTek™ NDI® protocol, so you can use Camera for OBS Studio with any NewTek™ NDI® compatible receiver. MULTIPLE DEVICES If you're lucky enough to own multiple iOS devices, use them together and produce a multi-camera stream. MAC AND PC Supports OBS Studio running on macOS and Windows. You will need to install the OBS Studio iOS Camera Plugin from our website, or use an NDI compatible receiver to use this app.



  • Great App!

    By Funkemunky
    A very good app to have if you want to use your phone as a high quality webcam. It can have a few hiccups when it comes it pairing but it is very functional.

    I’m unable to stream without the “Waiting for USB connection” message showing up. I DO have a connection to the OSB software on my MAC but the message won’t go away.. I can’t stream a clear video. I’ve read through FAQ, restarted both prg rams and disconnected/reconnected from USB but nothing is working. I’ve emailed the developer twice and haven’t heard back. Really disappointed after having spent $15 on this program. Would like a resolution ASAP or a refund!!!!!!!
  • Easy to use

    A lot of people seem to have a problem reading the directions for this device. Simply download the plugin for OBS, purchase the app and you’re good to go. If there’s a problem connecting force close the app, unplug your iPhone, re open the app, and then plug in the cord again and it should connect just fine. Quality looks great and there’s very little latency when using usb cable. Would recommend as a camera solution.

    I have followed all of the directions but I still haven’t gotten my ios device to show up. I have tried everything and it still won’t work. It just says devices, none. It doesn’t give me the choice to switch to my iPhone. I have it plugged in and everything.
  • Doesn’t work

    I should’ve just spent the money on a webcam because this app is horrible. I’ve not been able to use it once because it continuously says “waiting to connect”.
  • So far amazing

    By Reckter
    Wow... I was super Leary about paying this much for an app, but I told myself, “hey I have wasted more on dumber things”. To be honest I had some issues getting it to work, but not because the app was broken, but I did not read the FAQ’s. 1. Make sure iTunes is installed and setup 2. Make sure the plugin is installed 3. Add the device in OBS 4. Open the app then connect the USB. Boom works perfectly and the video quality is amazing. I directly compared it to a Logitech 1080p cam. No comparison to the iPhone XS Max using this app. Yes, I know the camera on the iPhone is superior, but didn’t know how it would be with the app.. have to say it is amazing . Spend the money it is worth it. I’ll try to reposted after streaming for extended times to make sure there is no issues .
  • Support doesn’t exist

    By Rip $15
    Purchased the app and it doesn’t connect. After several failed attempted emailed for support and no response. The claim of answering emails with 24-48 hrs is bs. Don’t waste your time or money.
  • Greate app!

    By kuberdock
    I enjoying to use that app.
  • A huge improvement !!

    I use OBS to make videos and I had bought a web cam for it. But the image was not sharp and the biggest issue was that green screening in OBS was a nightmare. Getting a good result was extremely fickle requiring filter adjustment depending time of day and outside light coming in. I always assumed OBS chromakey filter just was not that good. After reading about this app I decided to give it a try. It took just minutes to set up and get a video feed. Wow! the picture from an iPhone really is a magnitude of order better than a good webcam! Then I decided to try the chromakey soon as I turned on the filter it was perfect! The default settings have a great image. No need to spend 5 minutes tweaking the filter settings! I really really did not want to spend 15 bucks for the App fearing it would not be any better than what I had with the webcam. But it turns out this was money well spent! Installation really was a breeze, I use a USB connection. Can’t speak for the WiFi connection. But it was very quick and simple and the improvements in image quality were huge!
