Hello everyone!

Let's say that you are giving a presentation to a relatively big audience. And you want to share some work, a practical demo let's say that you are doing on your desk.

It would be really helpful if you could turn your iPhone's camera into a live streaming camera to the projector (to the pc or mac that is, or maybe to the browser and make it work as an IP camera) and share what you are doing with everyone.

Is there an app, or a way to make that happen?

Thank you

What about Skype?
What i mean is something like that.


Remember the first iMac introduction video? Where at 5:18 approximately in the youtube video a guy with a camera comes and showcases all the angles of the iMac.

This is what i mean, if its possible to do that using the iPhone camera.

AFAIK, there seems to be a solution in iOS 13 and macOS Catalina that might achieve your goal. But, other than that, I think Airplay is a much better solution in general. Maybe just like Apple on their WWDC/Special events, they hook up an iPhone and transfer iPhone display content to an Apple TV or something.

connecting an Apple TV to the projector and screen mirroring on the iPhone? Done it several times using an old generation 3 Apple TV without issues.
