MacOS Sonoma (14.1) no longer recognizes NDI Tools as a virtual camera

After updating to MacOS Sonoma, you may notice that Virtual Input or NDI Webcam is no longer a recognized source as a webcam in your software. The issue is Apple has turned off a feature called "legacy camera support" and it can be re-enabled in Recovery Mode by following these steps from Apple:

When you restore these legacy settings, the camera privacy indicator won't display in the menu bar while a camera with older software is in use.

  1. Restart your Mac into Recovery Mode:
  2. Click the Options button, then click Continue.
  3. From the Utilities menu, choose Terminal.
  4. Enter this command:
    system-override legacy-camera-plugins-without-sw-camera-indication=on
  5. Press Return. Depending on your system configuration, you might be prompted to complete additional steps.
  6. Quit Terminal.
  7. From the Apple menu, choose Restart.

To change back to the default settings, follow the steps again and enter this command:

system-override legacy-camera-plugins-without-sw-camera-indication=off


Why won’t NDI Tools install?
