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)


  2. Plug it in via USB and your system will handle it all for you.




    No prompts are present. You can confirm your Mac system sees your Mevo Start by going to

         About This Mac > System Report > Camera

    Your Mevo Start will be listed there as a camera source.

  3. Select it as your video source in the app of your choice (example: Zoom)

My Mac has a USB-C port and it isn't detecting my Mevo Start
This is a known issue we are working on, currently the workaround is to simply flip and insert your USB-C cable or reinsert the cable until it is detected.
