Using Live Video in Mac Keynote

A new feature in Keynote 11.2 is the ability to show a live video feed on your slides. You can use this to show yourself or something you are demonstrating on your presentation screen. You can also show an iPhone or iPad and when you record your presentation the video is included and ready for export.

    Have you tried having two live windows on the same slide to show the same thing from different angles simultaneously, or can it only stream from one source at a time?

    Cameron: Yep. Works great. I tried two camera and an iPhone and all three on the same slide. Try it yourself and see.

    Hi Gary and thanks for the great videos you create! I have an M1 MBP (big sur) and tried yesterday to use The live video feature on a keynote presentation, after I saw your video. I tried to project my iPad’s screen first and then my iPhone’s. I connected them via an original Apple adapter and the cable of course. All I was getting was a black screen on keynote. Any ideas why this might have happened? Thanks for replying, in advance!

    Timos: Perhaps those devices are too old or you are running an old verilsionnof iOS on them?

    Timos, Gary, I have the same issue in my M1. Did you also use an m1 Gary? I have tried to connect latest iPhones and iPads alls running ios 15 but always get a black screen. I’m suspecting it is an m1 issue.
