Frequently Asked Questions

  • How do I allow access to my webcam? Webcam not working in chrome or firefox browser?

    arrow-icon

    You will get a permission popup if it is the first time you are accessing your webcam. If you have skipped or disabled it by mistake, you can click on the disabled icon on the top right corner of the chrome search bar and enable access again. Or go to browser settings and make sure you grant access to your webcam for the particular site. For Mac users on the latest OS, check if you have given permission for chrome to use webcam in the system preferences.

  • Can I use an external webcam device?

    arrow-icon

    Yes, you can use any external webcam. Make sure the proper webcam is selected from the list

  • What if I am still facing issues?

    arrow-icon

    Try either of these: restart the browser, the system, update the webcam device driver.

  • My webcam is not listed in device manager

    arrow-icon

    Check if you have given permission for the site to use the webcam. Or check if your webcam is enabled and the latest drivers are installed.

  • My webcam is blurry

    arrow-icon

    Try to clean it your webcam once. Also, check if it supports HD resolutions.

  • My webcam is not working on zoom

    arrow-icon

    Make sure your webcam is not open on other apps. Sometimes restarting zoom or restarting systems might help. If it still continues, check and update your webcam device drivers.

  • My webcam is not smooth and is snappy.

    arrow-icon

    Check and disable if you are in power saver mode. Webcams usually perform auto white balancing or exposure balancing which can be quite heavy, so try recording in a well-lit room. Select a high FPS webcam.

  • I only see the colors. It’s not my webcam’s preview.

    arrow-icon

    Check if you have selected the right webcam from the list under settings.

  • Webcam not working on mac.

    arrow-icon

    As your first step, check if your browser has the permission to access webcam. For Mac, In System preferences > Under Security & Privacy > Camera, you will have to check if you’ve granted permission for google chrome to access webcam. If the permission is granted and the issue still persists, try restarting your system.

  • Webcam is not working in Internet Explorer (IE)

    arrow-icon

    Most of the browsers support fetching the webcam/mic stream, but some browsers like IE (Internet Explorer) will not support webcam or mic fetching. We suggest updating your Internet Explorer version to the latest one. If the issue still persists, try accessing webcam from a different browser such as Chrome or Firefox.
