"No Camera Detected"

I’ve been using google hangouts for months now with no issue and all of a sudden it is saying “No camera detected” even though all of my permissions are allowing for camera detection?

My hangouts are still working on Chrome so not sure what to do?

Hi @wklemmer,
Can you try clicking on the lock icon next to the url bar - then go to site settings.


Within site settings, can you clear site data and reset permissions. Then go back to hangouts and allow the camera permissions when it prompts you.

If that doesn’t help, can you try creating a new profile and seeing if the issue persists?
Click on the menu icon in the top right corner > create a new profile.

Just tried those things - didn’t work :confused: – still says “no camera detected”? And I checked system preferences and camera is allowed on Brave.

BUT - I just totally closed my browser and restarted it and it worked! I’m an idiot, thought I already did that.

Thank you!
