ATEM Mini -> Webcam Output to Chromebox

PostTue Jan 14, 2020 10:26 am

Hi there,

We use Google Chromeboxes in our office with the Google Meet equipment and software. I had planned to use the Atem Mini webcam output a the webcam feed in for the Google Meet Hardware, which is just an Asus Chromebox.

Unfortunately the Chromebox does not see the Webcam output as a real Webcam. Anything I am doing wrong here, or is this just not a compatible use of the devices?

I've got a similar problem. My ATEM Mini shows up in my Acer Predator Helios 500 laptop, but does not show up on a custom vMix Ruby X10x64 rig, with a Gigabyte Designare motherboard, Intel Core-i7 CPU, and GTX 1070 video card. How can I get the Mini to show up? Because it is our main rig, and the laptop is only the backup.

I can confirm the same result when using a Chromebook.

I connected the Atem Mini to a Chromebook Pixel 2015 LS model laptop running the latest stable release of Chrome OS at this time (version 79) using a USB-A to USB-C cable.

Using the Google Meet application I was able to change the audio source from the laptop's internal microphone to the Atem Mini, however the video output (aka 'webcam output') of the Atem Mini was not detected or present as an option within the application settings.

I then reconnected the same Atem Mini to my Intel NUC desktop system running Windows 10 version 1909 using the same USB cable. I was able to launch the Google Meet application and select the Atem Mini as both the audio and video source. To put that another way, it worked properly and as expected.

While not the most scientific test, the results would appear to indicate that the problem is specific to Chrome OS, and not the Google Meet application itself.

Excellent thanks so much for the information, this is a major deal breaker for me for using the Atem. Would be great if this could be solved somehow - without relying on Google to patch it! haha

I am trying to use Meets on a Mac Mini with Chrome - and having the same problem. Has anyone experienced a solution for Mac?

I've been trying to get this working all morning. ATEM Mini will not work as a Camera in Chrome. I'm using a 16" Macbook Pro and the latest Chrome build. In Chrome at chrome://settings/content/camera, Blackmagic Design shows up as an option, but selecting it doesn't enable the camera on any sites that use it. It just uses my built in Facetime camera, despite it not being selected. I've tried a bunch of things to fix it and nothing has worked.

The Camera works in Firefox, but Firefox has an issue with my Antelope audio system, so I can use either good video OR good audio, but not both. Frustrating!
