USB camera splitter

First Comment
edited March 2022 in Peripherals

I'm looking for a hub for a USB camera so I can send the video to two devices at the same time. I didn't realize this was such a scarce item?

    USB just doesn't work that way.

    Not sure if that is possible but you can try some alternatives, like
    1. Yawcam to host on main pc and stream on another via the local ip on a web browser.
    2. Using a capture card>OBS>what ever you want.
    3. USB network gate might work but is paid for commercial, it has a 14day trial you can do.
    4. Some specialized KVM that allows 1usb to 2pc.
    In my opinion the capture card is the best option. Hope this helps.

    Thanks for the feedback, I'm just a little concerned of the probable video delay/lipsync issues with most of these devices. I'm using the camera for high quality video presentations, but will check them out.
