Currently, there is not an official integration between Switcher Studio and Zoom. However, there are two ways to output the Switcher Studio live view to Zoom:

  1. Using Switcher as a Webcam

  2. Using Apple Airplay

Using Switcher as a Webcam

The release of Switcher Studio 5.5 introduced new functionality called Switcher as a Webcam. This approach is the easiest and best way to connect Switcher Studio with Zoom. However, there are some limitations that can eliminate it as an option for some users. Here are the current limitations:

  • Requires a Mac computer in addition to the iOS device(s) running Switcher Studio.

  • The audio source is limited to the built-in mic on the iPad/iPhone, a bluetooth mic connected to the Pad/iPhone, or the analog headphone jack if it is available on the Pad/iPhone. You cannot use an external audio source that uses the charging port.

If you have a Mac and can use one of the audio options above, we strongly recommend using the Camo integration. You can find more detailed information and step-by-step instructions in the Help Center article: Using Switcher Studio as a Webcam

If you do not have a Mac and/or need a different audio setup than those allowed, we recommend using the Airplay option outlined below.

Using Apple Airplay to get Switcher into Zoom

Using Airplay to get the Switcher live view into Zoom requires a Mac or Windows PC computer running the Zoom desktop client on the same network as your iPhone or iPad. You will screenshare from the iOS device running Switcher Studio into Zoom using Apple Airplay. Here's how to set it up: 

  • Join or start a call from the Zoom desktop client on a Mac or Windows PC.

  • Click Share Screen in Zoom.

  • Choose iPhone/iPad via Airplay option.

  • Check the box that says Share sound.

  • Click Share.

  • You will be prompted to install a plugin the first time you go through this process. Click Install.

  • From the iPhone/iPad running the Switcher Studio app, go to the Outputs tab.

  • Scroll down to the Outputs section and tap To HDMI/Airplay.

  • Tap Output the Live Feed. Once selected, a blue check mark will appear.

  • Open the Control Center on your iPhone or iPad.

    • On newer devices open Control Center by swiping down from the top-right corner of your screen.

    • On older devices, open Control Center by swiping up from the bottom.

  • Tap Screen Mirroring.

  • Choose "Zoom-YOUR COMPUTER NAME" from the list.

Note: Make sure you mute the mic in Zoom or turn the input volume down and only use the mic that is connected to Switcher. If you try to use the audio device that is connected to Zoom while using video from Switcher your audio will be out of sync.
