Hello, @dyossi. To isolate the issue, make sure that the camera is updated to the latest firmware and that the cable used works using other devices. 

 

Are you trying to stream to any of these tools - Webex, Zoom, Microsoft Teams, Skype, Google Meetings, OBS, and Wirecast? See if not getting the output could be due to a platform that is not supported. 

 

Also, make sure that your setup is done according to the steps detailed at https://gopro.com/en/us/news/how-to-use-gopro-for-webcam . If th issue persists, you may check with the manufacturer of the capture device for compatibility information.
