Unsupported recording devices and services

To maximize the chances for device compatibility, it’s generally recommended to ensure your computer has the latest drivers installed, and that you double-check your connections to peripheral devices. That said, all of the following devices and software are known to cause issues with the Descript recorder:


  • Camo
  • Continuity Camera (macOS)
  • Elgato Camlink
  • ElecEye 1080P HD
  • EOS Webcam Utility
  • GoPro
  • Iriun webcam
  • Krisp Camera
  • Logi Tune (please disable Logi Tune while recording in Descript)
  • Lumina Plus
  • OBS virtual camera
  • Opal Camera
  • Sony Imaging Edge
Using an iPhone as a Webcam with Continuity Camera

Although your iPhone supports 4K video recording, the Continuity Camera feature limits webcam recordings to 1080p resolution. 


  • Airpods
  • Krisp (merely having Krisp running can cause issues)
  • Rode Podcaster USB mic

Other devices and services

  • ASIO4All
Virtual webcams are unsupported

Any service that takes a camera signal and allows apps on your computer to recognize it as a webcam will not work with Descript. If your camera is not recognized by the native camera app on your device, it likely will not be recognized by Descript.
