Virtual Camera Support in Zoom for macOS

Zoom had disabled virtual camera support for Zoom in an earlier release on macOS. They have recently reenabled support, but only on a limited/whitelisted basis for a few virtual cameras. Included below is permitted software on their whitelist as well as virtual cameras that have been denied.

If your virtual camera software is not listed below on either list and you would like me to request whitelisting, please send me an email and I will compile a campus list to send to Zoom for consideration. Please note: The main decision point on whitelisting is that the software must have a valid code signature (which could rule out open source software, like the OBS plug-in).

Current Whitelist

  • Snap Camera - Snap, Inc.
  • BlackMagic - Blackmagic Design Inc.
  • ManyCam Virtual Webcam - Visim Media Inc.
  • Wirecast - Telestream LLC
