Logitech StreamCam 60 FPS Solution for OBS in Linux


New Member
Just bought the StreamCam and was wondering why it couldnt run with 60 FPS in OBS. Probably some others have the same issue.

A simple solution is to create a new video device with V42L (v4l2loopback) and a ffmpeg stream from the Webcam.

first create a loopback video device
sudo modprobe v4l2loopback

lookup wich one got created
v4l2-ctl --list-devices

then create the ffmpeg stream

ffmpeg -f v4l2 -input_format mjpeg -framerate 60 -video_size 1920x1080 -i /dev/yourwebcam -pix_fmt yuyv422 -f v4l2 /dev/theloopbackvideodevice

now u should be able to grab that device with 60fps in obs

have fun

for my Brio, which has the same problem, bizarrely, If I set resolution to "Leave Unchanged" it defaults to 1080p, and I can select 60fps. If I select 1080p, I can't then select a framerate higher than 30.
