Wired Webcamera Mode (UVC)

UVC stands for "USB Video Class" which is a USB driver for cameras to be used via USB. This allows the Mevo Start to be used as a wired webcam. UVC functionality requires that Mevo Start is plugged in to your computer similar to how you would use a traditional webcam. Note that you will no longer be able to record or stream while using the Mevo Start as a wired webcam. No downloads are necessary.

Device Requirements

- Only available on Mevo Start
- Mevo app version 2.1 or newer
- Mevo Start firmware 1.1.62 or newer.

How do I enable it?

  1. Enable in Mevo App (demonstrated below)
