Why is there no Mac software for the Kiyo Pro?


Userlevel 1

This is my first Razer product, love it. It looks great and I will test it out in video calls and such. But there is no native Mac software from Razer. Anyone know why that is? If I cant get to the setting proper I will have to return the probably coolest cam on the market

MacOS is not supported by Synapse 3.

You can only use your webcam as a ‘generic’ one - without drivers.

There’s 3rd party software like Razer macOS but currently it doesn’t support any webcams (maybe in future): https://github.com/1kc/razer-macos

That kinda sucks. Guess I have to return the cam then. Thanks for letting me know.

The camera is marketed as compatible with MacOS. I specifically need to access the wide angle which, on MacOS, I cannot. Will return.

I have a Mac and the Razer 

Try this app - http://mactaris.blogspot.com/p/webcam-settings.html

 

Allows you to control the Razer. Image quality is excellent

 

Thank you Urban, i tried that app. Besides the fact that after the first launch it always crashed on launch, it didn’t let me access the 120 degrees wide angle on the camera (only digital crop of the default 90 degrees) which i could instead access via the razor software on my windows pc :/

Hi,

Trying to bring up old thread. So can anyone from Razer explain at last - why there is no proper Mac support in Synapse 3 software?

In case you need to adjust basic webcam settings (for example stop flickering) - this software did the trick for me:

Pretty sad that Razor cant get this support done...

Right? It can’t be that complicated to develop and considering the potential market size it seems obvious to support Macs. 

@FiszPL, do you know if support for Mac is being considered for the future?

I just received my Kiyo Pro Ultra. I’d read good things about Synapse before I ordered, but I missed that Mac is not supported.

I don’t know unfortunately. This is question to Razer :)

Please Razer, give us an answer and a solution!! 🙏

You’re a saviour. I was thinking to return it.

 

But, are we expecting some support from Razer in future or not?

I’d like to know if there will be official support for Mac’s as well.

PLEASE bring MAC support for even Basic Camera Settings!!

I have a Razer Kiyo Pro on my Macbook Pro and I use Webcam Effects app to control the camera.  Allows me to zoom,  pan, tilt and add effects to the image that is produced. Works pretty well.

Webcam Effects app works great with Razer Kiyo Pro and Mac.
