Bug Report Camera not recognized when changing USB ports


New Member
Hi All,

I have a new iMac with the most recent OBS and if I ever switch the port my USB camera is in, all of the sources for that camera break. I have to reconfigure the camera in the properties anytime I move the ports. In the device properties, the camera shows up with #2, #3, etc. appended to the camera name whenever I move the port. Any idea what could be going on? I've tried this with multiple brands of cameras and they all act the same. All works great if I don't switch the initial port I used. Interestingly enough, this doesn't happen on the Windows version. I can freely move the camera between usb ports and it reconnects it every time.
