Help: Camera is shutting off in video mode

Hi, Apologies that is a newbie question. I am attempting to use by my Nikon Z6 as a replacement for my webcam that suddenly stopped working.  I attempted first to use the new Nikon webcam utility to get the video into Zoom, but the utility was causing software to quit unexpectedly on my Mac (I am using the most recent MacOS, Big Sur). As a fallback, I tried today the Elgato Cam Link 4K for the video stream.    I am able to get remarkably clear video in Zoom, but after a minute or so, the camera is turning itself off. I am providing the camera with power through an adapter rather than the battery.  Would really appreciate suggestions as I am delivering training sessions tomorrow regarding Covid.  Thanks in advance and stay safe.
