OKIOCAM does not have a power button, and the camera does not require a button to be turned on. As soon as there's an application that requires camera access, OKIOCAM will automatically show up in the camera list. An easy way to check if your OKIOCAM is working properly is to use the built-in applications such as FaceTime, QuickTime Player, and PhotoBooth to run a test. In this article, we will be using QuickTime Player to demonstrate.
Step 1. Plugin the OKIOCAM. On the menu bar, click the Apple icon > About This Mac. In Overview, click System report. If your OKIOCAM is recognized by the computer, you should see the camera under Hardware > USB.
If your OKIOCAM is connected but not shown in the system report, please submit a request to our Help Desk.
Step 2. Launch QuickTime Player. On the menu bar, select File > New Movie Recording
Step 3. In New Movie Recording, the default camera will be the built-in camera on your computer. Click the arrow next to the recording button to open the camera list.
Step 4. Choose OKIOCAM as the default camera. You can also run a test recording by clicking the recording button.
If you're still having issues with your OKIOCAM, please submit a request to our Help Desk. Our support team will happily help.
I just got the Okiocam T. Trying to use it with MacBook Air (OS10.15.6 Catalina). When I try to record a new movie on quicktime with Okiocam, the recording stops almost immediately and I get a message that recording stopped. Quicktime records movie with the built in camera on the mac but not working with Okiocam. Help!
Are you able to see your OKIOCAM T in System Report? If not, please kindly submit a request and we will assist further.
