How to use mimoLive’s virtual camera in Microsoft Teams?

UPDATE June 2021: The issues is fixed in MS Teams for macOS Version and higher.

The current version of Microsoft Teams (below does not load virtual camera devices on macOS. We are hoping that Microsoft will fix this in an update.
This behaviour is seen in Microsoft Teams Version

There are two options to work around this issue:

  1. Run an older version of Microsoft Teams
  2. Remove Teams Code Signature to enable virtual camera in MS Teams
  3. Run Microsoft Teams in a Chrome Browser

Please be aware that both workarounds contain certain risks and that these workarounds are not recommended.

Option 1: Use an old version of MS Teams

Delete the Teams app and re-download an older version of MS Teams.

Option 2: Remove MS Teams code signature

Removing Team’s code signature is another way to re-enable virtual cameras. To do this:

1) Ensure that you have the latest version of Microsoft Teams, by picking Check for Update from the menu in the top right corner of the Teams window.
