OBS Virtual Cam to Discord

I'm running OBS 26.0.2 (64bit) on macOS Mojave 10.14.2.
I'm running the latest version of Discord.

The new Start Virtual Camera button hasn't displayed below Start Streaming & Recording, but it has shown up under Tools > Start Virtual Camera. This may have been the OBS-VirtualCam MAC I installed.

My goal is to Livestream a Logic Session onto Discord for my band members. However, when I go onto Discord the OBS Virtual Camera does not display under Video Settings > Camera.

I've been able to successfully use the Virtual Camera on Zoom.

Would anyone be able to pinpoint what my problem might be? Thanks in advance.

I have the same issue.
On Discord, there's no virtual cam on Mac OS(I checked on Windows, there's a virtual cam.)
Is there anyone who solve this?

Same issue. Discord not showing OBS virtual cam as an option. Running OBS 26.1.0 64 bit & Mojave 10.14.6. This would solve a lot when it comes to Logic and Discord streaming.

Please read https://github.com/johnboiles/obs-mac-virtualcam/wiki/Compatibility and https://github.com/johnboiles/obs-mac-virtualcam/issues/4. You can also find log messages about why the DAL plugin gets rejected in Console.app logs (or run the application from Terminal).
I solve the problem from that link.

Try this on Terminal.app and restart discord.
Code:
sudo codesign --remove-signature /Applications/Discord.app/Contents/Frameworks/Discord\ Helper\ \(GPU\).app /Applications/Discord.app/Contents/Frameworks/Discord\ Helper\ \(Plugin\).app /Applications/Discord.app/Contents/Frameworks/Discord\ Helper\ \(Renderer\).app /Applications/Discord.app/Contents/Frameworks/Discord\ Helper.app

HI .. thanks for the suggestions but was not able to work around the problem. Virtual cam works for Teams, Zoom but with discord 0.0.261, OBS 26.1.2 and Mac OSX Bug Sur (11.1), it is not working: it shows a blank screen ..
Thanks for any further indication.. in advance!

Yes! totally worked. Big Sur 11.2.1 with newest OBS / Discord. Note: You do have to have Xcode installed or the command won't work. If you don't have it you can download either from the app store or command line <- Not sure if this was mentioned yet.

Hi Mommocmoc,

Thanks for the tip. I entered the command in the Terminal, but when I hit the Enter key, it's then showing me: "Password: (with the symbol of a key)". I'm running StreamLabs OBS 0.27.1 virtual webcam.

Anyway, it's not appearing in Discord so I wondered what is that "password: (KEY)". Do I have to enter my main password cuz I'm not able to type anything in the terminal after your command. Sorry I'm not used to the Terminal.

Thanks in advance!

I just want to say thank you very much for posting the trick about the code sign --remove-signature. It has made all of the virtual cameras (OBS and Snapcam) visible to Discord. :)

Does anyone know how to get this to work with Discord Canary? Currently only the canary build is built to run natively on M1. It has a load of performance advantages.

I am using OBS compiled for M1 as well as Discord Canary.

But when I unsign the Discord Canary Helper (GPU).app, Discord will refuse to launch:

Edit:

Discord canary requires a signature, but It doesn't matter if it is valid. Doing this solved my issue.

Firstly, revert back to the default discord canary, download it from discord and do not modify it.
Secondly, open it, sign in and use it. Once you're logged in and everything then quit it and open terminal and run:

Bash:
sudo codesign --remove-signature /Applications/Discord\ Canary.app/Contents/Frameworks/Discord\ Canary\ Helper\ \(Renderer\).app

sudo codesign -s - /Applications/Discord\ Canary.app/Contents/Frameworks/Discord\ Canary\ Helper\ \(Renderer\).app
