Browser - Webcam Not Working

Browser – Webcam Not Working

In the unusual event that your video is not working when joining a 3CX WebMeeting from a browser, please follow these tips to ensure your video is up and running in no time:

  1. If the “Could not detect your Webcam” message is displayed, your video device is not connected or not working.
  2. Check if you can see your preview image at the bottom right of the screen or a red camera icon beside your name in the Attendees list, as this indicates that there is an issue with your webcam.
  3. Check if another application is using your webcam by closing all video-related applications, and join the meeting again. This is the most common reason for your video to stop working.
  4. Check if your browser may be blocking your webcam:
  • For Chrome check in “Settings > Advanced Settings > Content settings > Camera”.
  • For Firefox check in “Options > Privacy & Security > Camera Settings…”.
