Question / Help Problems finding Blackmagic ProRecorder H.264


New Member
Hey all, just downloaded OBS and I'm starting to mess about with it. Looking to use it to replace Blackmagic Media Express. I am having an issue in that OBS won't "See" the Blackmagic device when I add a source. Blackmagic Device is listed, but when I add it the device dropdown menu is empty... Any ideas? What am I doing wrong?
Media express still works fine, its just OBS...

MacBook Pro macOS 10.12.6

Thanks in advance!

Have you installed the BlackMagic drivers?

If so, does that device show as a camera option in other applications, like QuickTime Player or FaceTime?

OBS should be able to see any standard video class USB device if the proper drivers are installed.
