  • Give Camo permission to install on Mac. It will move to "Applications" and set up a plugin so video conferencing applications can see and use it.

On both Windows and Mac, Camo Studio will also ask if you want to automatically check for updates. We encourage you to allow them, as we regularly release updates to maintain compatibility with a wide range of video apps and add new features and improvements.

Camo Mesh and Camo Studio

Camo allows you to connect your mobile device to Camo Studio via Wi-Fi or USB. We recommend pairing via USB for your first session as it offers the best video latency and connection stability.

If you are using an Android device and want to connect to a Windows computer, the easiest way to pair is via Wi-Fi, as the USB pairing process is more complex in this case.

  1. On your computer, open Camo Studio and tap the+button next to thedeviceDropdown on the left sidebar. This will open a pairing window that will display a QR code.
  2. In Camo on your mobile device, tap the wireless button at the top right, then scan the QR code displayed on your computer.

Hi Bill, thanks for the comment. We certainly have it: Camo is completely native to M1. 🙂



Hello, I have connected my iPhone to my monitor (HP z27) via USB. The Camo app shows "active" and I can see the video on my MacBook through the Camo app, but when I join a Meets call I get the "Configure settings" error. Any ideas?

Hello Kokayi, thanks for the comment. We understand that vMix requires Windows and does not run on a Mac. When we ship the Windows version of Camo, we expect it to be supported.
