Fantastic! Many thanks Yemsky - that worked for me :)

Skype seems to have the same problem - would the same process work for that do you think?

I honestly don't know whether it would work for Skype as I don't use it on my Mac.

Please report back once you tried it for MS Teams and let us know whether it resolved the problem for Skype as well.

It definitely works for Teams, but not for Skype - I'm guessing the same sort of process would though if it was configured for Skype.

Hi

I have this same issue - I followed your nstructions and now HAVE my Hero 9 working as a webcam with MS Teams, thank you.

 

Now I want to get it working with Skype.

I am not a coder, but I tried to use Terminal, and modify the 'Microsoft' string you showed for Teams to Skype

 

sudo codesign -remove-signature "'Applications/Skype.app"

 

sudo codesign -remove-signature "/Applications/Skype.app/Contents/Frameworks/Skype Helper.app"

sudo codesign -remove-signature "/Applications/Skype.app/Contents/Frameworks/Skype Helper (GPU).app"

sudo codesign -remove-signature "/Applications/Skype.app/Contents/Frameworks/Skype Helper (Plugin).app"

sudo codesign -remove-signature "/Applications/Skype.app/Contents/Frameworks/Skype Helper (Renderer).app"

 

 

After entering the first string above, I entered my password, but Terminal app returns some error about usage, which I do not understand:

 

sudo codesign -remove-signature "'Applications/Skype. app Password: Usage: codesign identity [-fv*] [-o flags] [-r reqs] -ident] path # sign codesign -V [-v*] [-R=<req string>|-R ‹req file path>] path| [+ ]pid ••• # verify codesign -d [options] path # display contents codesign -h pid # display hosting paths normanrouse@ Normans-MBP ~ %

 

I know that there are four files in the Skype/Contents/Frameworks folder that have to be unsigned to make Skype accept an external GoPro camera as a Webcam...

Skype Helper

Skype Helper (GPU)

Skype Helper (Plugin)

Skype Helper (Renderer)

 

As I say, I am not a prgrammer or coder, but any help would be much apprciated, thank you.

Hi 

 

The error is because of a syntax error in the instructions - namely you need a double dash rather than a single before the remove-signature instruction.  This worked for me:

 

sudo codesign --remove-signature "/Applications/Skype.app"

sudo codesign --remove-signature "/Applications/Skype.app/Contents/Frameworks/Skype Helper.app"

sudo codesign --remove-signature "/Applications/Skype.app/Contents/Frameworks/Skype Helper (GPU).app"

sudo codesign --remove-signature "/Applications/Skype.app/Contents/Frameworks/Skype Helper (Plugin).app"

sudo codesign --remove-signature "/Applications/Skype.app/Contents/Frameworks/Skype Helper (Renderer).app"

 

Also with the latest update to Teams on MacOS I found I needed to run the instructions again for Teams including all the 4 helpers like this:

 

sudo codesign --remove-signature "/Applications/Microsoft Teams.app"

sudo codesign --remove-signature "/Applications/Microsoft Teams.app/Contents/Frameworks/Microsoft Teams Helper.app"

sudo codesign --remove-signature "/Applications/Microsoft Teams.app/Contents/Frameworks/Microsoft Teams Helper (GPU).app"

sudo codesign --remove-signature "/Applications/Microsoft Teams.app/Contents/Frameworks/Microsoft Teams Helper (Plugin).app"

sudo codesign --remove-signature "/Applications/Microsoft Teams.app/Contents/Frameworks/Microsoft Teams Helper (Renderer).app"

 

Hope this helps.

 

Cheers

 

Ian

This worked for me BUT - I had to follow the updated instructions on the page linked to by the (very helpful) Mr Yemsky Smiley Happy
