+1 for wired webcam support for PC .

GoPro can do it very easily . This is the only feature that is lacking and preventing me from purchasing. Whichever I can find a good deal on first that has this feature, is what I will be doing. I want action camera to function as my desktop webcam , wired, for use on a multitude of programs.

+1 wired webcam support for PC as well!

This option shouldn't be so difficult to realize. Osmo Action -> USB cable -> Desktop -> OBS Streamlabs or Studio and we are ready to go Now, DJI just needs to allow us and make it happen!

PS. If we could use a resolution starting 1080p 60 FPS or higher this camera is going to be sold out soon as well (just saying)

+1 for this. Might return, since I bought this not knowing it couldn't be used as pc webcam. Cams sold out or price gouged like crazy right now, and this is a great option relative to hero 8, but gonna go with GoPro if this feature can't be added. I know nothing about programming, but I feel like this would be a pretty basic thing that can be built.

Nice tool., but its a paid for app(quite right as well) but a trial version should be available in case it doesnt work, also just noticed that you need to start streaming in the MIMO app, which requires an internet connection.

The Russian guy who developed software to do it, no longer supports it. I would guess he got a cease and desist letter from DJI.

This is absolutely a needed function. I don't want to buy multiple devices to do ONE task. Plug it in, make it work as a PC webcam source. Go Pro already has it, and the russian guy did it. So, I don't believe for a second that it can't be done.

Camera wise, The Osmo Action beats most of the Go Pro specs. However, the inability to develop an update or straight up answer that it is or is not possible will likely push me to buy a Go Pro and then look back in 5+ years to see if DJI finally got on board.

Yes, i have bought one because i appreciated the guys work. There is a very small lag <1 sec but for the rest it works fine. But i think DJI would need to incorporate this in the next firmware to have the option to connect via USB.

There is a way, using RTMP, to have it as a webcam: https://forum.dji.com/forum.php? ... 238&pid=2130719

And I added a solution to reduce the lag: https://forum.dji.com/forum.php? ... 238&pid=2190488

+1 would be a great addition to the feature list. Lovin the camera for the last year. Under lockdown this would be a much better camera than my old webcam
Thanks for considering.

Can someone from DJI let us know if this is possible via firmware update? or is there a hardware limitation that prevents this from happening? I kind of need this feature, so if it's not possible I need to start looking for a different camera.

+1 to this. It's been a long time that people have been wanting this, I'm surprised that this wasn't built-in natively. I'm having a hard time finding a way to get this work through NGINX and reverse-tethering to reduce packet loss.

Honestly, if it can connect to our phones wirelessly and show us the video image there (AND let us control its setting from the phone), how can it not connect to our computers wirelessly just to simply mirror the video image?  I thought I had found a way to beat the system through using Zoom, but not quite.  I can connect my iphone to my imac with a lightning cable, and in Zoom's options I can mirror my phone screen into the Zoom Meeting.  Since the Mimo app is on my phone, I can have the Mimo app open and showing the Action Camera's video, BUT it only shows it in portrait mode, not landscape mode.  SO, I can turn on my Action Camera, pair it to my Mimo app, plug my phone into my computer, and mirror my phone's screen into my Zoom calls, but only in portrait mode.... So close yet so dumb.

If this is not a hardware limitation, this would be quite useful.  I do have a quite nice logitech webcam for my main desktop pc.  But the Osmo usually travels with me, and it is the right size for this function, is easier to mount everywhere, is much better than laptop webcams, has a nice wide FOV.

Cheap action cams can do this.  GoPro can do this.  My Sony RX100 can do this.  

I have yet to find a satisfactory response from DJI in any forum post.
