Quick tutorial on getting a virtual camera input on your Mac, I wanted to get this down before the iOS NDI HX Camera app isn't free anymore (June 1st)

So even 2 months ago, getting a virtual camera and audio input on your Mac from an external source (like your iPhone's camera) was impossible or a huge pain in the rear end. Since then, a few things have happened:

NewTek released new macOS NDI Tools that finally include an NDI Virtual Input utility for the Mac, and it works great! Get that here:

Zoom also had virtual inputs blocked for a while, but in the latest update (5.0.4) finally re-enabled it:

https://support.zoom.us/hc/en-us/articles/201361963

quote:

Support for virtual cameras will be re-enabled for users on client version 5.0.4.

So finally, you can now have an NDI video/audio source as a virtual video/audio input on your Mac, for use with Zoom and whatever else.

The free thing that will cost $20 after May is the NDI HX Camera app for iOS, which turns your iPhone into a very nice, low latency webcam:

There used to be an official Android NDI HX camera app too that got pulled for some reason. I haven't tried it, but it can be sideloaded... don't blame me if your Note explodes.

I recently got my first Mac and have some questions about MSOffice.

I have Office365 through work and I use it extensively. It appears that the AutoSave feature isn't working right on the Mac and I don't know what's up. On Windows I open a file from my OneDrive, and autosave is already on and whatever work I do automatically updates the file, and it gets reuploaded like it should. On Mac, however, every Office file I open, whether it be word, excel, powerpoint, whatever, the auto sync feature is always turned off when I open it. I have to click to enable autosave, then it has to overwrite the file that is already there. I have to give permission for it every time.

Does anyone else have this behavior? Any idea how to fix it?

Is it a setting in Preferences maybe?

FWIW I was never able to get this working - either in Quicktime video recording or in the updated Zoom. There's a knowledge base article saying if you're using an iPhone X to disable the microphone in app but that doesn't seem to fix anything for me.
