In my quest for better video conference quality, I discovered a way to use my iPhone 11 Pro as a webcam. The quality is way better than my existing Logitech. Still some tweaking to do, but very promising.

@cleverdevil I’m in the middle of a search for apps to enable this. I’ve found about a dozen so far but nothing that works well. Please share how you’re doing it when you get a moment!

@fgtech the app I am using (so far) is EpocCam HD. It seems to work nicely, especially when the iPhone is plugged in via a lightning cable. It also works over Wi-Fi, but with lower frame rates and more latency.

If you want to use it with Zoom, you’ll need to install XCode and “unsign” the application using this command:

codesign --remove-signature /Applications/zoom.us.app/

@cleverdevil Ahh.. I had given up on EpocCam as broken, but didn’t know the “unsign” trick. Thanks!
