Hello all-

Thanks for any help offered in advance! I'm running a show where I'm looking to connect to a guest and stream his MacPro 10.14 desktop. We ran a tech run through and couldn't get his MacPro to connect to VMix via Vmix Advanced call in either Chrome or Firefox. For reference, there is no webcam connected to the MacPro, we would just be using screenshare. I'm wondering if there is a permissions issue in 10.14 happening, there is no option to add an app to screenshare under privacy like the current macOS. Any ideas? Upgrading OS is not an option. We ran a zoom test too which worked, but Zoom asked permission to share his screen, where Vmix advanced call does not ask.

Thanks,
Brian

You could try and see if you have better luck with Safari, but I suspect you need to be able to feed it a camera for it to work.

You can use OBS to create a VirtualCam that you then can use for vMix call

Chatting with support, it looks like it is the missing webcam that is the problem. I'll report back results when I get it working!
