I have a MacBook Pro and would like to use the Pocket 2 with do-it-all handle and wireless mic for Zoom and GoToMeeting purposes. Is that possible? If so, can someone give me a "For Dummies" overview on how to to that?

Thanks.

Did you just plug it in and try it?
LOL...no.

First of all, the MBP itself makes using anything but the internal camera and the internal mic difficult (not impossible). Secondly, not sure if the Pocket 2 with the DIA handle needs some other sort of massaging to get it to stream into a different source.. The user manual doesn't address anything like this.

I was hoping someone who had a MBP had tried it.

Thanks for asking.

Although companies have been increasingly adding webcam support to make it easier to use more cameras as webcams, it doesn't appear that DJI offer anything to allow the Pocket series to be used as a webcam. I've found some suggestions that it may be possible to live stream on the Osmo Pocket 2 to a computer then use additional software to stream that as a webcam but even if that did work (I've not found anyone showing a working set up this way) it would be a clumsy way to have to do it.
