As seems to be the trend, Panasonic has jumped on the bandwagon of letting you use your mirrorless camera as a webcam over USB. Sort of. Whereas most manufacturers like Canon, Sigma and Fuji let your computer detect your camera as an actual USB webcam device, Panasonic’s solution… Well, it works, but it’s pretty clunky.
Instead of simply showing up as a capture device, like the others, Panasonic’s solution basically sends a live view stream to their desktop app (for Windows only). From here, you need to capture that app using something like OBS and then use an OBS plugin to fake a capture device that can be seen by Skype, Messenger, Zoom, etc.. Yeah, like I said, it’s pretty clunky.
