    I believe that on the F200, the driver that would provide video on a non-RealSense program would be the Virtual Driver.  Can you check please if you are able to change the selected driver from Depth to Virtual Driver please?

    Thanks a lot.. Before posting here, i had tried all the options/Depth to Virtual driver as well as RGB; Used "Update driver", Scan for hardware changes and got the message "this device is working properly.".. However none of them did any help. Looking for any possible solution. Many thanks in advance for the help.

    The F200 was five years ago, so I'm having to search my memory about its use with OBS.  My recollection is that it was intended to be used with the "green screen" background removal feature of OBS, rather than being a video webcam.  

    I had to go back a long way to find information about installing F200 support on OBS.  From what I can gather, the process for doing so is to check an option to install the RealSense plugin during OBS' installation process. If this option is not selected during installation then OBS apparently treats the RealSense camera like an ordinary webcam.

    A RealSense user who followed this process said that when the RealSense plugin is selected during installation, OBS prompts you to install the 2016 RealSense SDK software that is compatible with the F200.

    If that installation of the 2016 SDK through OBS fails, the '2016 R2' SDK installer file (which is 1.8 gb in size) is available from the link below:

    If you prefer a smaller download, you can download the core depth sensing functions for the F200 by downloading and installing the Essentials module of the RealSense SDK version 2016 R3 (the R2 version provides the entire SDK in a single big install, whilst the R3 version splits the features into a compulsory Essentials module and a series of optional modules).
