Hi,

I have both a mac and a windows, On my windows machine I have tons of option to manipulate my webcam. However on my Mac I have none of these options. Whats the deal?

Do I need to reinstall OBS on my Mac? Something is definitely not right.

OBS is dependent on the device drivers built into the OS or that are provided by a device's manufacturers. What you see in properties is what those device drivers expose. It is not unusual for Windows drivers to show options the MacOS drivers don't have.

Your MacOS screen shot indicates OBS is not seeing the device at all, as you haven't selected a device from the pulldown next to "device".

Thank you for getting back to me.

Here is an image with the device being recognized. Still no properties.

And here is all I get when clicking the Use Presets off:

Still nothing even close to the options I have with Windows. The Mac is a Macbook Air so might it have something to do with the graphics card? Also I noticed there are two types of OBS, the original and the studio version. I was thinking of uninstalling and trying to download the studio version. Maybe that would change things. The version I have right now just says OBS.

If you think of anything other work around I would love to hear it.

I am also thinking of checking out some other streaming software for MAC.

Chiggins, I am having the same issue. I see that you have posted earlier this year. Did you manage to figure out any workarounds for this issue?

I have all the same issues with 15” Macbook pro retina and With a big MacPro. Clearly this is missing from the Mac version and is needed. I am using Marshall PTZ cams, which are great, but I really want to control them in OBS.
