External Camera and Mic App Support (DETAILED)

So, I have seen some requests on here regarding these ideas already but I wanted to go into a little more detail.


As of now it is already 100% POSSIBLE to stream from my mobile phone with my GoPro camera and using an external lavalier mic.

...Just not with StreamLabs.


Currently, I use a OnePlus 5 phone with a USB C to USB adapter plugged into the Elgato Cam Link to capture the video then to a HDMI to Micro HDMI to my GoPro Hero 6. Then I have a Lavalier mic with a windscreen plugged directly into my phones 3.5mm with a 3.5mm audio mic adapter.

*** I also use this exact setup with my DSLR camera with a gimbal as well. This will work with any camera with hdmi live view capability. ***


This all works flawlessly when streaming with CameraFi Live App to twitch/youtube/facebook! CameraFi Live lets me use the different cam and mic inputs to stream from. I was extremely surprised that Streamlabs does not support this option yet.


PLEASE add this option, It would change the game for streamers tremendously! There are already a lot of streamers I know of who use CameraFi Live over Streamlabs JUST because of this. If this was added to streamlabs, SO many streamers would make the move to streamlabs for sure!
