If your Zoom calls and remote presentations to your team are getting a little tired and boring, you should check out mmhmm which just came out of beta with v1 of the app.

Level up your remote presentations. Make high-quality video content in minutes. Mmhmm turns your laptop into a full video production studio.

Official description from mmhmm.app

mmhmm – which is a funny app name to have to say out loud – is an app you run that becomes your camera inside of Zoom, Meet, or Skype calls. So instead of picking your FaceTime camera as the camera, you choose mmhmm as the camera. The fancy term for this is a “virtual camera” and it’s a growing market for sure on the Mac with other apps like Ecamm Live and OBS both offering this as a feature as well.

What makes mmhmm a little more confusing for some folks is that it’s presentation software – but you don’t create your presentation inside of it. You still use Keynote or Powerpoint to put slides together, which you can then import into mmhmm – alongside any videos, GIFs, sharing your screen, or sharing your iPhone demo of Apple Arcade games you dig – anything you may want to do as part of your full presentation.

Think of it as a camera in the conference room where in normal times you’d be giving your 4th quarter sales projection numbers presentation, except now you have to do it from your home while your kid is screaming “backpack!” because Dora and Boots told them to shout “backpack!”

It’s easiest to go hit up the download page on mmhmm and try it out, but here’s a few screenshot of how it looks in action:

Descript just launched brand new screen capture and video editing features that could make it a compelling app to use in your podcast or video production workflow.

In the tutorial video, I walk through how I used Descript to edit a video for my podcast, Show Me Your Mic.

A viewer of my YouTube channel sent in a question about how to send audio from mic to GarageBand to OBS for live streaming or Zoom calls, and whether it’s best to incorporate Loopback or not to make it happen.

Original question:

I just want to send out sound from GarageBand (which has been enhanced with effects) to OBS and sometimes to Zoom or Facebook live. What steps do i need to take (I would imagine that in GarageBand my output should be sent to Loopback and that in OBS my input would be Loopback. Is this correct? And if so, how to do it?

I recently reviewed the beta version of Reincubate’s Camo – a macOS and iOS app that allows you to use your iPhone or iPad as a camera – and now that the final version of Camo is out, I thought I should do another quick video review. This time I show how you can use Camo to live stream with Ecamm Live or OBS Studio.

After watching the video above, you can check out Camo and the related live streaming software at their websites right here:
