Q&A... Please read

How to Use ↗︎

The plugin does not activate / Video does not start?

Make sure the computer and the phone are on the same network. Both wired (Ethernet) and wireless (WiFi) connections are fine.
Try restarting your WiFi router: unplug from power, wait a few seconds, plug back in and let it start up.

If your computer has multiple network interfaces, make sure OBS Studio is using the correct one ("Bind IP" option under Advanced section in OBS Settings).

If your computer has VPN software installed, try connecting DroidCam before enabling the VPN, or connect the app over USB to bypass the VPN.

If you have extra Firewalls enabled on your computer / your phone / your router – these might block the connection. Firewalls are usually present on corporate or school networks, and connecting via USB is the recommended workaround.

Read Error: timeout / Anti-Virus software error

Some Antivirus software block the connection from OBS to the phone. Try to add OBS as an 'Allowed App' in the A/V software.
With Avast look in the Web Shields option.
With AVG disable their "Web Protection" option.

How to report a bug

If you are having trouble on the phone, use the (⋮) menu in the app, open Info page and again under (⋮) use [Send Logs] to send in a bug report.

If you see OBS on the computer crash or misbehave, please email the OBS log to dev47apps at gmail.com.

Can I get 4K / Can I use Wide Angle lens on my phone?

Support for non regular front/back cameras varies from device to device. In order to work in the background and for more efficiency, the app does not use all the latest camera features in Android. Improved support for additional camera features should come with future upgrades.

Can I get the Pro upgrade if I dont have the Play Store or GMS?

Yes, you can purchase DroidCam OBS for use on Android phones without the Play Store and GMS.

How do the regular DroidCam app and PC client work with DroidCam OBS?

On Android, the new DroidCam OBS app & this plugin are separate from the regular DroidCam app & client (these are much older).
DroidCam for iOS works with both this plugin and the regular PC client.
