Ive got several cameras and ive got some xsplit pick your camera of choice ill be using my main camera, which is a hd pro webcam c920, its a 1080 webcam, which is great ill use that get some good clarity, choose your camera resolution and usually, given a Few resolutions there as well ill go for the 1920 by 1080 um frames per second webcam, so well, click on that and set your microphone and all the rest of it as well and youre good to go click on back and thats. Basically, what youre going to see and when you start selecting all your different filters like thats me as anime, for example, which i think is quite good. Actually i quite like this um in fact im im torn between this one and with that one. To be perfectly honest, but were talking about this one so were going to stay with this one right. So what you see here in snapcam right is great. Now what we need to do is get snapcam. This feed were getting here which is taking the image from your webcam, putting it through a filter in snapcam into your conferencing software of choice, whether that be zoom, whether that be teams, google meet or even sticking it into obs or streamlabs obs. So once you can see this on the screen, you know your configuration in snapcam is working now its on to the bit of software, your conferencing, software or streaming software to do the configuration there so lets go and take a look Music.
So here i am in microsoft teams and you can see that in the microsoft teams sort of like pre meeting interface, where you can set your background filters, turn your video on or turn your video off. Its already picked up the feed for my snapcam feed. Okay, because its looking at my default webcam now, if you dont get this youre gon na, have to go into the settings, option right and check out your camera settings now, as you can see its set to snap camera, which is the feed coming from snap camera. Select that you can select different feeds as well now, if you want to go back to our normal image without snap cam working right, if you click on that youll see, it wont itll freeze now. The reason for that is is that the feed is still being used by snapcam to get it back to a normal image. Youre going to have to close snapcam down completely and exit from the software, then youre going to have to stop your video and then restart your video so ill. Just demonstrate that theres, my snapcam icon, were going to quit that great. What we should be able to do now is go into settings, make sure my webcam is selected turn my video on, and here i am back to normal um dead, easy so in to ensure that you get your snap cam feed coming in make sure youve selected. The right feed dead, easy and make sure youve, selected and youve got running snapcam.
You may need to put in and start running it again from the default menu. So it says no camera input available, thats because im using it in microsoft, teams and thats how its going to get its knickers in the twist. So turn your video off click on snapcam select your input, feed hd pro webcam 920. Choose your resolution ill go with the 1080 one click back and my feed is back and now i can start adding, adding and editing any filters i want to put on there so were going to go with, i think, perhaps the anime style now and there. I am in full anime, goodness and its that easy so have fun, with it thats more fun, with microsoft teams using snapcam by snap inc and using the filter called cartoon style or anime style as well. Theres, two really good ones there. As you can see, im going to add those to my favorites, because they really are good have fun with it.
