If you've ever wanted to use your iPhone camera as a video & audio input to stream using OBS Studio, we've got you covered. We've tried all the apps that let you do it over WiFi, but they're not fast enough, so we also allow you to use a wired USB connection.
Your iPhone/iPad camera's are good, really good. In fact, there’s no comparison between the highly recommended streaming webcam, the Logitech C922 HD Pro and the iPhone 6 Camera.
If you don't have a separate mic for your streaming setup, you can now use the microphone on your iOS device to stream audio & video.
Stream a selfie with the front camera support. Switch anytime during the stream with the familiar camera switch button.
TAP TO FOCUS, PINCH TO ZOOM
Controls just like you're used to from the Camera app.
Stream video over a wired USB connection. This avoids the issue of delay over wifi, as many other solutions suffer from. This is just as fast as a USB webcam!
USB & WIFI
Choose the connection type. If you want low latency, use USB, if you'd like portability then use WiFi. WiFi is done using the NewTek™ NDI® protocol, so you can use Camera for OBS Studio with any NewTek™ NDI® compatible receiver.
If you're lucky enough to own multiple iOS devices, use them together and produce a multi-camera stream.
MAC AND PC
Supports OBS Studio running on macOS and Windows.
You will need to install the OBS Studio iOS Camera Plugin from our website, or use an NDI compatible receiver to use this app.
- Add new settings: Independently choose resolution, frame rates and the encoding bitrate to find the sweet spot between performance and quality
- Fix stretched video preview on iPad
- Fix issue with flipped image when using the front facing camera (Not sure this is the best solution, but for now the video is now correct on the receiver)
Ratings and Reviews
I have to admit I was a little reluctant to buy this as there are a ton of apps that claim to do things .... but don’t .. however this ain’t one of them and I really can’t fault it ... if you follow the instructions given everything works as it should and as claimed by the developer ...I’ve used Logitech cams for years but have never really liked them .. they were pretty much the best out of a bad bunch so I made do .. this app now takes things to a higher level as the iPhone camera is head and shoulders above any webcam I have come across .... one thing to be aware of is that you will need an external mic or use your laptops built in mic .. the developer has said that he is looking into adding the mic function to a future update ... however this app is still worth the money just to get the iPhone camera quality .. Top notch app with great results so thank you to the developer for the work that has clearly been put in to this .
Thanks Agenthoover :) - I'm still working on the mic functionality!
I have used many WiFi webcam apps and they are fantastic yet glitchy and laggy. Yes this app is costly but completely worth it. Please note you must have iTunes installed in order for it to work. (Developer please make this more easy to find in your instructions) This issue was made clear after contacting the support team who in fact replied in minutes to help me as I couldn’t get it to connect at first. Easy to set up and also allows you to stream in 4K and 60fps which makes a very good looking camera considering I’m using an IPhone X. Installing the OBS plug-in was easy too. Great Job with the app and hope this review helps others. Another tip from myself is if you buy a camera adapter phone case you can stream with a wide angle lens or even fish boll.

Thanks so much for your in-depth review! Will take all points into consideration and see what I can do :)
Thanks again, Will.
I thought my Logitech C922 webcam was good until this app let me use my iPhone X with OBS. The difference was night and day!!
Followed the instructions and everything went smoothly. Only thing I had to change was the resolution from 720p to 1080p in the app settings.
Thanks for the review Quicksilva_uk :)
