On Linux you don't need any software from Canon to use your camera as a webcam. You can use pretty much use any camera from any manufacturer.Oh Linux... I didn’t realize you were still there...you may go now.
I ran my 5Diii for over 1.5 hours with power adapter, no stops or breaks in the video signal, all good. It appears to use the live view facility, so I guess that doesn't build up as much heat as running in video record mode. I did have it on a tripod and noticed that the top of the tripod was warm, so it may provide some heat sinking.
It's similar resolution, but that's not really the point! If you have good lenses (L series with low f stop) then you can get an image quality your webcam can't possibly achieveYeah, I wish it would go to at least 720P. 1080 would be ideal considering my webcam already sends 1080P at 60fps
I would love to have support for my 5D Mark II, that would be great!
I doubt they'll support 5D Mark II or Mark III because I think they're only supporting cameras with continuous video autofocus like DPAF. Then again, the 70D has DPAF but it's not listed.
I'm not in USA and I have succesfully used it, it's just for download purpouse that is regional restricted. Just try it.
Correction: Both my 5DIII and 5DII work! YAY
After checking EposVoxs Video on it I figured I'd give it another try. The problem is that it is highly Application dependant. ()
E.g. it didn't work with Jitsi Meet but OBS works just fine.
It wont show on start menu, it's just a plugin that automatically loads whenever you connect the camera via usb port, and makes the OS think you connected an USB webcam.Stupid question, I've just installed this but where do i find it?? Can't see it if I click Start button?

If for example you open skype, in the video settings tab where you select which webcam you want to use, it will show "Canon Webcam Utility".
