MOKOSE 12MP HDMI Camera 1080P USB HD Webcam Outputs Still Frame in OBS

I just bought one of these to use over my piano keyboard. It works okay except for one thing: the live video stops after a short period of time and outputs a still frame from some time ago.

I've never heard of a webcam that freezes and outputs that frame indefinitely.

I have two cameras trained on the keyboard. The MOKOSE is an overhead looking down on the keyboard. The other camera is a Sony EX1 doing a profile shot.

The Sony works continuously, but the MOKOSE won't update the picture. I'm moving my hands over the keyboard, but all the MOKOSE is showing is the keyboard without my hands!

I'm using OBS Studio to capture the cameras and stream. The manual for the MOKOSE shows it being used with OBS, so it's compatible.

What I don't understand is why the camera was realtime when I first hooked it up, but then soon froze the image. I've never heard of a webcam that freezes the image.
