Dear developers!

Almost every large photo-video company (Sony, Panasonic, Canon) launched PC/MAC companion apps last year that provides webcam functionallity for their cams.
Event DJI direct competitor GO Pro provides functionality to use Go Pro as a webcam.

For the last years a huge amount of OSMO users asked to bring that feature to OSMO platform and MIMO app.

So, please, give it to us:
1. Provide DJI Mimo companion app for Mac/PC that will be able to control OSMO Pocket/Pocket 2 wired/wirelessly and to record video/audio directly to Mac/PC drive.
2. It will be also nice to provide default drivers to use Pocket/Pocket2 in such software as QuickTime/Skype/Zoom as webcam with mic.

Forum users! Please, reply to sign in that petition, if you agree with this opinion.

DJI team, please provide us feedback on this question. It's not so complicated. Why others compamies could do this flawlessly?

Absolutely agree with the first post. It would benefit both users and the company, as we would get more functionality and DJI would get more selling points and more customers.

I don't need or want webcam function.  I already have a webcam.
If too many extra functions are added, the menu system will become a nightmare to navigate.

I absolutely agree. It is ridiculous that DJI totally ignores their clients.

Not all people do have separate webcams, and even if they did, it usually doesn't have the chance to control the camera movement automatically, like it would be maybe possible to apply here.

As for the possible menu complications, it might be that it doesn't need to be that complicated. It could be done in a way that it only appears when connecting the camera to PC, first a menu (that already exists) for asking if the user wants to connect to PC when connecting the USB, then after accepting that there could be another asking whether to connect it as a card reader or a webcam. Only two menus - not that hard, right?

Supports this proposal!
Opportunity to use OSMO Pocket as a WEB camera with face tracking functionality had increased the value of the camera significantly for me.
Hope DJI also sees the same potential.

On new Apple computers with M1 chip it is actually possible to install the MiMo App and control the Osmo Pocket 2.

The App is not approved for this use, but it works (not well, alas). Installation is very fiddly, and you need to use the advise in this link https://forum.dji.com/thread-228866-1-1.html to make the WiFi connection manually, before things will work. This is a screen shot from my Mac Mini M1 with Big Sur 11.4:



The App needs a few manual configurations (i.e. allowing access to location, image directory etc), and it is not really that usable, since it is impossible to rotate the app to landscape use (easier to rotate an iPhone ;-) The biggest problem is, that the DJI Pocket 2 gets extremely hot after some minutes (22C, indoor overcast outside, fresh air) and then looses the WiFi connection.

But in theory, DJI could easily adjust the App code to make it work on all M1 equipped Macs; they just haven't discovered the option it seems (DJI is not that active, when it comes to discovering a better customer experience - see all the entries requesting firmware updates to remedy this, that and the other "insufficiency" in the DJI Pocket 2).

I can't agree more!
Pocket has a very nice movement on GImbo that normal webcam unable to provide.
If Pocket able to connect to MAC/PC as a webcam via a cable or the DIY handle WIFI transmission just as it does with Phone. It will greatly improve the functionality.
More streamer would love it!!!

I had seen post since 2-3 years back on this topic but until now, no progress.
I had also feedback to technical support team in their official Chinese Wechat portal half a year ago.  The only answer i got is they will escalate it to the product team. .....

I second this. I really need it. I am using my samsung DEX to use the window of DEX as an input on OBS just to use this damn thing as a webcam...
