I updated Vmix, and I have a webcam everywhere but in Vmix. OBS, Facebook, and I already tried so many things. ONLY Vmix is stopping me. All I can get is a bright green screen on any camera or video related source. I was working earlier tonight, but after the update to I cannot add an input that is any kind of video that will display properly. The Add input feature is working for audio, titles, and images, but no video of any kind will display properly. I tried windows permissions, I tried everything I can think of. No video sources will display.

2021 Macbook Pro M1 Max running Windows 11 via Parallels

And as far as Parallels goes, every update has worked, and it has worked flawlessly until now. Also, video works in anything BUT Vmix...I even went to my Mac settings on the other side. I tried app permissions, camera permissions...you name it. I cannot find the issue, and normally I am good at these things. Have a show on Sunday and not sure what to do. Tried even rolling back to an older version. Nope. Nothing but a bright green screen

@ LivestreamNM,

vMix is only recommended for a pure Windows OS, for which Bootcamp is required on a Mac as Parallels is only a "virtual" OS and will generally not provide the access to the GPU and advanced Windows Multimedia features that vMix requires:

Some users have claimed moderate success with Parallels on M1 systems, but it has never been recommended or supported by vMix.
I feel your pain, but you are pretty much on your own with this one if you insist on using a Mac with vMix.

Same here: Updating Vmix from 25 to 26 turns all video inputs green.

But with a fresh reinstall of windows, then Vmix 26 and everything is working fine...
