Webcams not working in Chrome 1 Recommended Answer 146 Replies 1737 Upvotes

I have an issue across multiple windows devices with Chrome not being able to access webcams.

This issue is apparent with every computer in our office (all windows 10 running stable release of Chrome). Hardware is various manufacturers and it has been tried with internal and external cameras.

The camera is functional in other apps and works on other browsers (for example https://www.onlinemictest.com/webcam-test/ would show a video stream in Edge or Firefox, but not in Chrome).   This first became apparent with Google Meet, which we use a lot.

We've tried clearing caches, alternative camera and removing plugins. None have an effect.

Same thing happening here.  Started after the latest Chrome zero-day update and there-after.

I'm having same issue on my mac. Webcam working perfectly on Firefox and Safari but at first intermittently working on Chrome, now not working at all and saying 'No device found' for either camera or mic. I've been through Settings to check camera/mic, have uninstalled and reinstalled Chrome etc. No joy. I've seen others are having this issue - does anyone know how to resolve? FYI I tried incognito mode but still no luck with webcam in Chrome. Thanks

I have the same issue.  Websites say that I need to enable permissions before using the camera.  I've reset all permissions and added them back in and issue persists.  I've uninstalled chrome and reinstalled it, reset it to factory settings, and cleared the cache.  The issue happens in both regular mode and incognito.  Other browsers work fine.

I'm running chrome version Version 75.0.3770.100

EDIT:  Im on a Mac and found that if I go to Security and Privacy settings and select the Camera, Chrome was unselected.  When I selected it there and restarted chrome the issue resolved itself.

Just go to chrome settings -- then go to privacy and security tab -- go to cookies and other site data -- then allow all cookies -- and refresh the page by pressing ctrl + shift key + R and enjoy using webcam!
 
No need of thanking me...
