I have a MacBook Air and a Windows PC laptops. Due to the COVID19, I have to begin using Zoom Softward for work purpose. Because of my work requirement, a dock camera is needed besides the build-in camera that my laptop has. Is there a possibility to use Osmo Action camera as a second camera during a Zoom video conference? I do not need the audio input because my laptop already has a built-in mic for the audio input purpose. Thank you y'all.

Yes, it is possible

But - you'll need some Linux knowledge for that and also - it's a bit complex procedure, but it works, here is a proof:



Here are the main points:
  • You'll need a linux machine (VM with 1-2 cores and 4GB RAM should be enough) with Docker or Podman installed. You can also do it directly on windows, see the URL below for instructions.
  • Install nginx-rtmp from the following URL. it should be simple with 1 single command: https://hub.docker.com/r/tiangolo/nginx-rtmp/
  • Install on your Windows OBS Studio and install OBS VirtualCAM (Download and install it from here: https://obsproject.com/forum/resources/obs-virtualcam.539/ )
  • On the OBS screen, add the media that you want to be played back (it's optional)
  • Launch DJI Mimo, connect to the DJI OSMO (you'll need the 1.0.8 firmware at least), and select live stream
  • Select RTMP, type the address as: rtmp//your-ip/live (example: rtmp://192.168.0.10/live), don't forget to select 720P and 4Mbit and start the stream. If everything works, then you should hear the camera beeps and your screen on the phone should show that it's streaming.  You can exit (by clicking "home" button) the app on the phone
  • Go to the OBS, and in the Sources click the "+" key, click "Media Source", give it a name and press OK.
  • unclick the "Local file" and in the "Input" line you should type the RTMP line just like before: rtmp://192.168.0.10/live for example, and then press OK
  • If everything worked, you should see your video from the camera: watch out - there is some lag!
  • Click again on "Sources", click "Video capture Device", give it a name, press OK, select your webcam and set everything you want, then press OK

Arrange the OBS screen as you want to. There are tons of tutorials about it on the Internet.

Now comes the important part: on the OBS, click on Tools and select VirtualCam, then select "Target Camera" "OBS-Camera" (don't select the others unless you installed 4 of them when installing the plugin), and click "start". Close the window with the X on the upper right (don't click Stop)

Open your video calling app (Zoom, WebEx, whatever) and go to the video settings of that app. Switch the cam on the app to "OBS-Camera" and you should see the OBS output.

Congratulations ;)

Notes:
  • It doesn't work on Skype (at least on Windows). Why? donno...
  • You might see the output mirrored. In the OBS, click on Tools, VirtualCam, and click "Horizontal Flip".

Good luck ;)

That's a nice solution ! I found a way to reduce the lag to less than 1 second.

The lag is introduced by the OBS client, there is almost no lag on rtmp.

So, instead of adding a RTMP media source to OBS (last 4 steps), here is what you can do:
  • Download ffmpeg (we will need ffplay that is inside) and install/unzip it
  • On Windows, once unzipped, you will then need to go into the folder, then into /bin
  • in a terminal/command-line prompt, write: ffplay -fflags nobuffer rtmp://127.0.0.1/live -loglevel verbose
  • a window will open and you will see your RTMP stream with the lowest possible latency
  • Now, in OBS, add a regular "Window capture" source and select the ffplay window


I would also point out that if you want to make the whole procedure easier on windows, you can directly download "NGINX 1.7.12.1 Lizard" which has already nginx-rtmp inside (this way you can skip the second step of the Hetz Ben-Hamo's solution).

Hello! I'm trying to stream from my Osmo Action, but it seems I can't.
I'm on Windows, do I need to install Nginx RTMP as well? Would you please explain what to do, please?
Another thing: when you say to set IP address in DJI Mimo app, is it the PC ip?
Thank you

Update: i was able to make it work!!!

I'd really like that too - often people want to be involved in live events, not just see a recording. Just adding my vote for a future feature

Hi DJI Natali,
I have proposal for you,
while I am using Zoom or MS Teams, I propose to using "share screen" menu,
Need your help to have an option to hide all menu Icon if am sharing screen "DJI camera" application Eg (see red highlight):
1. Hide battery level indicator both both Smartphone and Gimbal.
2. Hide DJI Camera setting menu
3. Hide smart phone Camera Setting menu

I only  use "share screen" from zoom or ms teams menu only in DJI camera menu application, hope screen clear from everything. I though this is very simple. thanks to help.
