I'm using an older version of Studio

If you have an older version of Studio (2.6.0 and earlier), or the steps outlined in the previous section do not uninstall the Studio Camera, you must use the Studio Camera uninstaller.

  1. Download this uninstall package.
  2. In your Downloads folder, open the mmhmm-uninstall.pkg file.
  3. An Install mmhmm-uninstall window will open. Click Continue to progress through the first two steps of the uninstall package.
  4. When you get to the Installation Type step, click Install.
  5. Once the uninstall finishes, click Close.
Note: Although the uninstall package refers to "install" and "installation", the only action it is taking on your computer is to uninstall the Studio virtual camera.

If you still see the Studio Camera in your video conferencing tools after uninstalling, try restarting the tool. If the Studio Camera still appears, try restarting your computer.
