Question / Help Window Capture not finding Powerpoint?


New Member
Hello All

I hope your all well and good. Im trying to setup live lessons for children on youtube.

I've watched a tone of Youtube vids on how to setup a powerpoint on my obs youtube live stream. Unfortunately when i try to window capture my powerpoint presentation doesn't appear as a option for me to choose. Very frustrating! Ive seen people click powerpoint in the list of sources too but that doesnt appear for me either.

im Running Macx os Catalina 10.15.3 - with the latest OBS if that helps you to help me :)

Ideally if anyone can help me with getting the powerpoint to display on a green screen that would be magic!

Really looking forward to hearing your responses. Please help!

When in PowerPoint, navigate to the "Slide Show" tab, then "Set Up Slide Show" option. Change the "Show type" to "Browsed by an individual (window)".
