Failed to access camera - Jitsi meet



Hello all. New Brave adopter here.

Error message “Failed to access camera” when opening a Jitsi meet tab.


Issue exists with all Shields combinations I could try as well as with all shields down.

Site functions as expected when using Chromium or Firefox

Ubuntu Mate 18.10 – fresh install

Under Security settings :
Camera and microphone access(Clear all) Always allow

Brave 0.25.2
V8 6.9.427.23
rev 8ea2a9c
Muon 8.1.8
OS Release 4.18.0-12-generic
Update Channel Release
OS Architecture x64
OS Platform Linux
Node.js 7.9.0
Brave Sync v1.4.2
libchromiumcontent 69.0.3497.100


The first thing I would do would be to update to the latest release.
You are currently using the Muon Brave build (v0.25.2). We have since deprecated Brave Muon in favor of this:

I highly recommend you install the new build and enjoy a much better browsing experience.
It runs in parallel with the Muon version you have installed now, so you don’t have to uninstall or overwrite anything and you can even import data from your previous Brave install into the new build.

If you decide you’d like to stick with the version you’re using now and want to resolve the problem, let me know and we can continue further troubleshooting for the Muon build.

Hope this helps. Please let me know if you have any additional questions.


Followed your advice. Installed current latest dev version (0.59.2 Chromium: 71.0.3578.80 (Official Build) dev (64-bit)). Decided to test!
I confirm camera is detected.


My pleasure!
Enjoy your privacy!
