vMix virtual device RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello, why I can't use the vMix output as a camera for the Skype For Business?

    I can use it without problem in other communications tools such as Skype (not for bussines), Zoom, etc.

    For us will be very useful to have this problem fixed.

    Thank you very much.

  • Hi doceno,

    Welcome to our forum.     

    We have a certification program, https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/office/dn947481.aspx, for SFB managed by the product group and includes all the qualified – tested devices, software and infrastructure components.  Unfortunately the communicator app does not support virtual camera from vMix.

    Skype for business only support physically attached cameras in the Skype for Business software. This means vMix Video is not available (Virtual Cameras) the same way it is available in normal Skype for business.

    Thanks for your understanding and support.

    Hi, me again...

    I just notice that you mention: "Skype for business only support physically attached cameras in the Skype for Business software." But that as you can see in the picture bellow (that I can not attach) it actually detects non-physical cameras, so there must be a way to add this virtual camera, maybe the guys in vMix have to change something, but should be possible for sure.

  • Hi doceno,

    At present, although it could be detected, there is no Microsoft’s documents to indicate that SFB support virtual device, please wait for Microsoft’s update. Thanks for your understanding and support.
