    Have the forums grown silent, of has everyone fixed their problems?
    I still have the Bose companion 5 and USB camera issues.
    And still don't see any solution from Apple.
    To me this is a big game changer. And ALL of my Hardware, Desktop, Laptop, iPad, iPhone, and Apple Watch.
    So being a loyal and very immersed used in the hardware and the software, am I to have a solution.

    ny somewhere
    have you tried contacting apple? or, contact bose (about the speaker issue), and the manufacturer of your usb camera. you can even try googling something like 'bose companion 5 el capitan', and see if anyone else has posted about the isse...

    if no one on this forum has ideas, it's nothing personal...

    Just some thoughts, might help, might not.

    Try opening Audio/MIDI setup.
    Does it see the speakers?
    Can you add them?

    USB Camera problem:
    Does the camera have a card in it, such as an SD type card?
    If you take the card OUT OF the camera, and put it into a USB3 card reader and connect that to the Mac, can you see the card then...?

    I know and thanks for the input. It just worries me. Bose does not have any answers apart from using the speakers through the headphones jack, so music will be 2.1 instead of 5.1 surround. And El Gato Software is updated. So instead I guess my question was not properly stated.
    I need a recommendation on a Good Speakers That will work through the USB Bus without turning off. And a Camera USB based that will permit me to see another room from my office. Any insight? Thank You.
