I have a 2019 base level MacBook Pro, and have noticed that running two C922 webcams are pretty taxing (not just Manycam, OBS as well). If I run one C922 at 1080 30fps, it’s all good. But two of them (and I’ve tried a DSLR as well to see if it makes a difference instead of two C922), it’s just heating up and running at 80 C, 3K rpms on fans constantly. If I push it down to 25fps, it cools down a little and there’s a little less fan. Here’s the thing, if I change the Manycam settings to “Hardware Acceleration: Disable” with all other general settings turned off, the computer actually doesn’t run as hot.
So here’s a question… has anyone been able to reduce webcam CPU usage or increase efficiency in some way when running 2 webcams on a Mac?
