Only one is camera visible in OBS

In order to connect the software to your goggles and additional webcams, a link must be created between them.  Most of the work is done for you in the template, but this is a “last mile” connection that is custom to your computer.

General Note:  Depending on your operating system, some or all of the cameras need to be linked.  After linking, you will not need to redo this step unless you reinstall the template.

Apple Users: You must plug the goggles into the exact same ports on the computer/hub each time or the video signals could get swapped or broken and you will need to re-link the cameras manually.
