My Elgato Cam Link video will not initialize on my Windows 10 Machine GoToMeeting app (v10.14.0 b18962 hitting the egwglobal.gotomeeting.com server). I have it linked to my DSLR and have no issues with,1) the machine or, 2) alternative online meeting platforms recognizing the device. G2M seems to recognize the audio from the Cam Link, but the video feed will not resolve. Although other platforms, mainly Zoom, seems to accept higher resolution settings, my camera is set as low as 720p, 24fps and will not resolve.
Here's the kicker....
When I join G2M via browser as a attendee (app.gotomeeting.com), and ask G2M to use the Cam Link as my webcam, it recognizes the camera just fine, with no issues. It seem that an attendee can have a better experience using their equipment than a client with a standalone app, or am I looking at this the wrong way?
On the surface it seems that the app development is behind the web, which I can somewhat understand. Is this a known issue? Is this on the development roadmap?
We have this exact same issue, if you use Chromacam it will work via that, but there has been no fix for this on the app for almost a year now.
Thanks for responding dharlow.
It's hard to fathom why I have to jump through hoops to connect to one of the most popular devices sold in 2020, an Elgato Cam Link.
Any thoughts on this, Ashley or Glenn?
It would seem that the resolution of this hardware may not be currently compatible with GoTo webcam streaming. 720p should be functional, but any higher will be out of our range.
Hello Folks, and update on that issue?
same issue occurs with an ATEM Mini, its probably related to the resolution being >720p.
but I its 2021. 4K webconferencing isn’t that new of thing. 🙂
When will this be fixed?
In 1:1 sessions (e.g., 2 attendees total) on the Web App, the resolution is 1920x1080px (1080p).
In the near future we are planning several webcam upgrades in the new GoTo app. More info to come at the start of 2022.
