Device Properties not recognizing external camera


New Member

First time using OBS. I tried to add my external camera to display in the software by following this tutorial, which is the same as many others out there. I confirmed that the camera is recognized by my computer as being connected to it. After going to Sources and adding a new Video Capture Device, and naming it, the Properties window opens up. The only Device option available from the menu is OBS Virtual Camera. There is no option to select my external camera. I'm using a brand new Windows 11 (purchased a week ago), and OBS v29.0.0 (64 bit). All suggestions welcome.

A Canon EOS RP is not a webcam. You‘ll need either a capture card or some sort off app to youse it as a webcam.
