Hi @jharbs,

Can you confirm what your Shield settings are when attempting to start or join a meeting? A screenshot would be perfect.

Hi, I’ve turned my shields off and still encounter the issue

Hi @jharbs,

Apologies for the slow reply, we appreciate your patience. Have you tired uninstalling and reinstalling your browser? Some unnecessary extensions can cause issues and may need to be disabled. You can also try clearing out the browser’s cache by going to brave://settings/clearBrowserData.

Hey Aaron,
The culprit was a User Agent Switcher extension. Removing this extension fixed the issue. Thanks for your help and suggestions!
