At first it said my camera permissions weren’t enabled. I had to go into browser preferences to enable as there was no choices within Talk. Now, it says I don’t even have a camera (I do).
Has anyone successfully gotten their camera to work on Brave Talk? Is this "feature" not available yet?
This is what I did to make it work (Windows 11).
- Check here if your camera is set to work on Brave https://webcamtests.com/
If not working:
- Got to Windows settings and search for camera, then enable camera access and test again in the site above
- If not working check your internet security to allow camera in “privacy”.
NB. re-Check if camera is enabled here brave://settings/content/camera
@CerealLover That fixed it! Thanks so much! Here’s what I think happened:
The first few times I tried, it wasn’t granted permission.
After enabling permissions, it still wasn’t working.
Then, I realized my laptop lid (with the camera) was down because I use external monitors. Because the lid was down, Brave didn’t detect any camera. I’m an idiot!
As soon as I opened my laptop lid (with camera), Brave Talk automatically detected the camera.

@Proxy Glad it was fixed! You might want to mark your post (or CerealLover’s) as the solution so other community members and Brave staff know your issue was solved.
@289wk thank-you for the heads up. Added to User Solutions: 1.40.x “Try this…” section.
@CerealLover and thank-you!
