Online Streaming Tip: How to Save Logitech C920 Webcam Settings

If you reading this post you are either 1) a longtime Logitech C920 webcam user 2) managed to have incredible timing and get a camera before they sold out like toilet paper 3) hope to get one real soon 😀. I’m in category #1 and have C920 C922x.

Now at this point you have probably discovered that if you unplug a C920 series webcam or shut down your computer, the camera forgets all of it’s settings 😬.

So how do you save settings on a Logitech C920? Here is how I’m doing it. Oh, and this method should work for any camera in the series such as C920 HD Pro Webcam, C922, C922X, C920s, C920.

[updated October 28 2022 to add current method for changing settings with Logitech Camera Settings. Old info left in this article for historical reasons]

Current Method

Logitech now offers a desktop app called LOGITECH G HUB. Set and save your webcam settings, it also has features for creating gamer profiles, controlling your stream in OBS and other third party apps, as well as controlling and sinking lighting with other logic controllers.

You can download it here

Past Methods

Logitech Camera Settings App

You can download this here in the Camera Settings section.

This is my preferred way of doing this. I left the Logitech Capture App info in here for historical reasons.

Logitech Capture App


Logitech has a free app for MAC and PC called Logitech Capture. You can download it here

System Requirements

Windows®10 or above

macOS®10.14 or above

7th Gen Intel®Core™i5 or later

Select your field of view, aspect ratio, and recording resolution. Additional options allow you to adjust white-balance, auto-focus, and frames-per-second settings.

Create a Logitech ID to save all of your Logitech Capture settings in a profile. Save up to six profiles to conveniently switch between sessions.

Here is How I Use Logitech Capture

Configure Settings

  1. Plug in your camera(s)
  2. Use Logitech Capture to change camera settings
  3. Shut down Logitech Capture
  4. Use your streaming app like Zoom or Facebook Live
Recall Your Settings
  1. Plug in your camera
  2. Start Logitech Capture
  3. For me this recalls the last setting saved
  4. Shut-down Logitech Capture
  5. Start a Zoom meeting or other video streaming app

Logitech Capture as an OBS Studio Alternative

Logictech touts Capture as an all in one content creation solution with the following features and even mentions you can “Broadcast yourself on YouTube come on Facebook live come up or twitch via OBS or XSplit”

In Use

When I tried it  on a Surface Laptop 3 with an snappy I7 Ice Lake processor I found Logitech Capture to be quite heavy on CPU. So you might want try the app for simple use cases.

I like the easy to user interface over say OBS Studio, but I personally found it too CPU heavy for say running multiple cameras plus Ableton Live at the same time. Your mileage may vary.
