I am new to this forum and definitely not an expert.
I have an old Canon SX700 HS and made a lot of research to turn it into a webcam, but I could not find anything, apart from the necessity of installing CHDK as a first step (100e firmware), which thing I have just done.
Also, I have a PENGO 1080p HDMI-USB 3.0 grabber,1080p@60fp (from the camera I go into it with HDMI cable), and when I connect it to my camera and to my Win10 computer I get clean HDMI on the Zoom meeting app but it seems like there is no way to have the live view (when I press "ON" or the shoot button on the camera, the lens opens up but nothing can be seen on the computer.)
I can only view pictures and menu on Zoom if I turn on the camera by the "Playback" button.
The settings of the camera are at 1080 and 60fps with HDMI enabled.
And I have tested the webcam on my TV via HDMI to see if I can get liveview, but nothing.
Am I missing something, like some extra software (like CHDKPTP) or script that needs to be installed on the SD card? Or maybe only USB connection is possible?
I have read that, unlike USB, only with HDMI and a video grabber I can get 1080@60fps. As said, I am not an expert. Just trying to grab the right information online.
I really hope someone can help. Thanks in advance!
