I downloaded and installed the Sony Imaging Edge Webcam software and I'm getting terrible results with it. I tried my A6500 and my A7R2 and both produce ugly video as webcams. In this video you'll see my old Logitech webcam that is FAR better than my A7R2. Any thoughts?

I had similar experience. The output resolution is terrible (less than HD) and the refresh rate seemed jumpy.

This inexpensive ($15) HDMI over USB adapter works flawlessly as a webcam in every app I have tried with great quality at 1080p:

Thanks for the suggestion. I think I'll try it. I wonder why Sony would release a program that does such a lousy job. It doesn't make sense.
