Mac M1 Big Sur with OBS 26.1.2 - Keeps Dumping Webcam after 1 minute


New Member
Hi All,

Not sure if anyone else is experiencing this issue.

I have a brand new 13" Macbook Pro M1 running Big Sur 11.2.3

I use OBS to stream live dj sets.

I set up the webcams in OBS, they are working and once I hit 'Start Streaming' the webcams stop working within 1 minute.

I have tried 3 webcams and all have the same issue.

They are all usb webcams and I have tried to run them via a mac adapter, through extender cables to a hub to the mac or directly into a hub then to the mac.

One camera I run directly into thunderbolt port on mac with a usbc cable, same issue as above.

All cams have same outcome, they freeze then go blank.

I still have sound.

Can anyone help?

Thanks in advance.
