Aan de slag met Camo

Cover image for: Aan de slag met Camo

To get started, you’ll need to install Camo Studio on your computer and get Camo on your iOS or Android device. We recommend installing the mobile app first.

Get Camo on your mobile device

Camo is beschikbaar in de App Store en Google Play Store . Je kunt het op beide vinden door te zoeken op "camo".

Camo Studio op uw computer installeren

Nadat je de app naar je mobiele apparaat hebt gedownload, kun je de computer-app rechtstreeks vanuit Camo delen.

  • To share from iOS to macOS, AirDrop the desktop app to your Mac by tapping the AirDrop icon on the Getting Started screen.
  • To share to Windows, tap Send Link from the Getting Started screen on Android or iOS.

Alternatively, you can download and unzip Camo Studio for macOS here and Windows here.

Once you've downloaded Camo Studio, double-click the Camo icon to install it.

  • On Windows, check the box to accept our license agreement and click Install.
  • On Mac, grant Camo permission to install. It will move itself to “Applications”, and set up a plugin to let video conferencing apps see and use it.

On both Windows and Mac, Camo Studio will also ask if you want it to automatically check for updates. We recommend that you allow these, as we release updates regularly to stay compatible with a wide range of video apps and add new features and improvements.

Camo en Camo Studio koppelen

Camo lets you connect your mobile device to Camo Studio via either Wi-Fi or USB. We recommend pairing over USB for your first session as it offers the best video latency and connection stability.

If you are using an Android device and are looking to connect to a Windows computer, the easiest way to pair is via Wi-Fi as the process to pair through USB is more complex in this case.

Find out more about the trade-offs between Wi-Fi and USB connections.

Pairing Camo over Wi-Fi

Pairing Camo with Camo Studio over Wi-Fi is simple and works the same for iOS and Android devices:

  1. On your computer, open Camo Studio and tap the + button next to the Device dropdown in the left sidebar. This will open a pairing window displaying a QR code.
  2. In Camo on your mobile device, tap the wireless connection button in the top-right and then scan the QR code displayed on your computer.
  3. Your devices should connect automatically and video from your mobile device should start streaming through to Camo Studio.

The minimum requirements for pairing over Wi-Fi on Apple devices is macOS Catalina (10.15, released in 2019) and iOS 13 (released in 2019). All supported versions of Windows and Android are compatible with Wi-Fi pairing.

If you encounter any issues pairing your devices via Wi-Fi, check out our handy troubleshooting tips or try connecting over USB.

Pairing Camo on iOS over USB

Pairing Camo running on iOS is automatic on both macOS and Windows. Plug your device into your computer using a standard Lightning cable and, after a couple seconds, you should see video from your device appear in Camo Studio.

Pairing Camo on Android over USB

The steps for pairing Camo for Android differ depending on whether you’re pairing to a Windows PC or a Mac.

Your Android should connect automatically to your Mac over USB. If you previously followed the steps below to connect to Windows, make sure USB debugging is turned off by searching for Developer OptionsUSB debugging and unticking it.

To pair Android to Windows, you’ll need to turn on USB debugging. The instructions to do this vary slightly depending on the Android phone you're using. We've outlined the process below using a Samsung Galaxy S20.

Als je hulp nodig hebt bij het inschakelen van USB-foutopsporing voor je Android-apparaat, neem dan contact met ons op en we zullen je door het proces voor je specifieke telefoon leiden.

To turn on USB debugging:

  1. Verbind je telefoon met je computer en open Camo Studio. U zou het volgende scherm moeten zien:

    Camo Studio shows the steps required to connect to Windows
    Camo Studio toont de stappen die nodig zijn om verbinding te maken met Windows

  2. Volg deze stappen op uw Android om uw apparaat te configureren:

    • Go to Settings, search for Build number and tap it 7 times.

    • Now search for Developer Options in Settings, scroll down to USB debugging and tick to turn it on.

    • Selecting Always allow from this computer means you will only need to do this once.

Camo activeren

U hoeft niet te betalen om Camo te gebruiken en de gratis versie biedt alles wat u nodig hebt om uw iPhone als een hoogwaardige webcam te gebruiken. Als je echter alle kracht van Camo wilt ontgrendelen, kun je upgraden door op de knop "Upgrade" rechtsboven in Camo Studio te klikken.

Dat toont een venster zoals het volgende, met knoppen onderaan om een licentie te kopen of een licentie te activeren. Als u op 'Nu kopen' klikt, gaat u naar de kassa van Camo om een licentie te kopen.

I'm an Android user. I use Google Pixel 4a. When will you release the app for Android? I have been waiting for a long time. I signed up on the app Page already.

Thank you, we're excited to see what you'll think of it! We'll be sharing it soon.

Can you recommend some clamps to attach the iPhone to the top edge of the screen or monitor!

Hi Tim, sure: check out our guide here.

Hi! Does this work with OBS, is a plug-in needed?

Hi Lorenzo, Camo works fully with OBS. No plugin needed!

Hello! Your app looks wonderful and I wanted to confirm that you have built it to work natively on Apple Silicon architecture without the need for Rosetta 2? Thank you!

Hey Bill, thanks for commenting. We sure have: Camo is fully native on M1s. 🙂

Hi - i've connected my iphone to my monitor (HP z27) via USB. The Camo app is showing 'active' and i can see the video on my MacBook via the camo application but when i join a Meets call i get the 'configure settings' error. Any ideas?


Hi Will, no problem: make sure you restart your browser after installing or updating Camo. That'll deal with this! And do reach out to us any time. 👍

How do I connect with my phone?

Hi Marsha, just plug it into your computer with the same cable it came with. If you get stuck, drop us a note directly and we'll guide you through it!

You have worked hard to get this far - and I want to tell you you are awesome! Beautiful App. Took me all of a minute to decide to purchase!

Thank you!

Is there an integration for Camo with the vMix streaming software?

Hey Kokayi, thanks for commenting. Our understanding is that vMix requires Windows and won't run on a Mac. When we ship the Windows version of Camo we're expecting to support it.

Hey, I was wondering if there was wondering if a version for windows was in the works

Thanks for asking! There is — expect to see it in a few weeks. If you visit the Camo page you'll see you can sign up for the Windows waitlist towards the bottom of the page.

Hello-does Camo work with Mac OS Big Sur yet? Just checking. I'm sure you intend to make it do so eventually.

Thanks! Phil Hubbard

Hi Phil — it does, Big Sur and iOS 14 both! We hope you enjoy it. Reach out if you need help.
