Go live with Canon's EOS Webcam Utility.

Out of beta, Canon has made available to download its EOS Webcam Utility software for macOS users. The easy-to-use program converts compatible Canon cameras into a livestreaming device with a simple USB connection. 

If you're a Windows user, don't sweat it, Canon already released the official version months ago. Now, both Mac and Windows users can livestream to sites like YouTube, Zoom, Google, Hangouts, and Facebook Live without needing to resort to third-party software.

Canon has made the process simple. After downloading the software, connect the camera using the correct USB cord, and then select the EOS Webcam Utility as the source within the streaming platform. The software is compatible with over 40 different camera models, including the EOS R5, 1D-X cameras, and the Rebel series. It even allows you to record internally to the camera while streaming. 

With the release, Canon is supporting the following macOS systems: Catalina (10.15), Mojave (10.14), and High Sierra (10.13), and suggests having at least an Intel processor, 2GB RAM or more, and display screen resolution of 1024x768 pixels. 

You can download both the Windows and Mac versions here.

I use an Canon XF400. Any chance that we can get access to that camera for live streaming?
