Host software compatibility


  • Linux

It seems like every single software is happy to accept the GB Interceptor. Of course, glitches can be expected in some cases when the software did not expect a 160×144 resolution.

Software Status Note
ffmpeg ✔️
OBS ✔️
VLC ✔️ You might want to reduce VLC’s default 300ms buffer to reduce latency.
Zoom ✔️
  • Windows
Software Status Note
OBS ✔️
VLC Seems to have trouble with the format and throws an error.
Windows Camera ✔️ Interceptor needs at least firmware 1.0.3
Zoom ✔️ Note that Zoom tends to hang if the Interceptor does not react properly. Unplugging and reconnecting can help.
  • MacOS
Software Status Note
Face Time ✔️⚠️ See remark below
OBS ✔️⚠️ See remark below
Photo Booth ✔️⚠️ See remark below
VLC ✔️⚠️ See remark below

Works on MacOS since Interceptor firmware 1.0.1. This has been successfully tested on a MacBook Pro with Intel CPU and Ventura 13.1. Unfortunately, the image is distorted and green on an M2 Macbook Air and I suspect that it is a bug in the driver for Apple CPUs, probably related to the Interceptors NV12 color format as other cameras work. Also see #1

  • Android

USB video class devices are supported when the Android device supports USB OTG (pretty much all devices with USB-C). However, few apps support the video format of the GB Interceptor.

USB OTG camera, Endoscope app (net.usb.usby) No image

There is no general support for the USB video class on iOS. Maybe Apple will add this in the future.
