Sometimes users wants to remove mimoLive from a macOS System e.g. to make a clean install of the software. mimoLive comes in an app bundle and therefor it’s self contained. However it saves some data in the application preference file as well as some folders.

The preference file can be cleaned by selecting the “Reset mimoLive…” menu item in the Help menu and may resolve issues you have with external hardware.

If you still want to remove all files mimoLive is depending on, here is a list of places to look into:

The mimoLive Preference file is located the users home directory at the following path:


The main folder for mimoLive data storage is located here:

~/Library/Application Support/com.boinx.mimoLive

The following folders are optional and only be visible if you installed a custom layer, a custom filter or a custom source. Another folder is for your mimoLive document templates.

~/Library/Group Containers/ ~/Library/Group Containers/ ~/Library/Group Containers/ ~/Library/Group Containers/

If you have installed the mimoLive Virtual Camera Plugin actually it splits into two separate plugins: One for the video and one for the audio part. Please note that those folders are on the root level of your boot volume:

/Library/CoreMediaIO/Plug-Ins/DAL/mimoLive Virtual Camera.plugin /Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/HAL/mimoLiveVirtualAudio.driver
