Virtual Camera Settings

VCam has a camera function called a virtual camera.

By using this, you can get video conferencing apps such as Zoom and Google Meet to recognize VCam as a camera.

Set up the Virtual Camera

In the "Virtual Camera" settings of VCam, you can check the status and install or uninstall the virtual camera.

After installation or uninstallation, you need to click 'Allow' in the 'Privacy & Security' settings on your Mac to apply the changes.

For the current macOS, there may be times when you need to restart your Mac after installing or uninstalling plugins. If it's not working properly, please restart your Mac. And, VCam must be installed in the "Applications" folder.

How to Use the Virtual Camera

In the camera list of the application that uses a camera, "VCam - CameraExtension [Number]" will be displayed.

Currently, there are two types of virtual cameras:

  • Virtual Camera (DAL)

    • Installed upon the first launch.

  • New Virtual Camera (CameraExtension)

    • Currently, only supporters can use this feature.

The new virtual camera reduces the load on the Mac.

Also, Apple has announced that "Virtual Camera (DAL)" will no longer be supported in macOS 14.
