Why isnt my webcam working on zoom.Zoom Camera Not Working? How to Fix It

 

Neither camera image would hold and I had to abandon the Zoom meeting. I then turned the android phones off and restarted them, rebooted Iriun, turned off the laptop restarted it, restarted Iriun connected the phones which displayed within the Iriun window. Restarted Zoom, reopened the meeting, selected a Iriun camera and the same result, no image, just an alternating flash between a split second display and looking for camera.

I had run a test the previous day without having any problem from the same venue which has fibre to the user broadband and very fast WiFi. I have run a test today from a different venue with fibre to the cabinet broadband, also with no problem.

Thanks for the suggestions IP-Man, Before I started the meeting, I had already checked that Windows 11 was completely up to date, including driver updates, I had installed the latest Zoom update, and checked that Iriun client was on the latest version. It did not resolve the issue. After further consideration I wonder if the fact that I was not the Zoom account holder running the meeting, but only the co-host after using the account holder’s invitation to join the meeting was the cause of the failure.

The tests that I ran before and after the failure that were successful were made when I initiated the meeting. The fact that I have attended other Zoom meetings by invitation, where I have successfully used an Iriun webcam as an optional freehand camera to illustrate a closeup of equipment detail contradicts the above suggestion though.

When I have an opportunity to run a test again at the venue, I will make sure that both the pro account holder and I have done a check that we are both running the same update of Zoom, and I will try to get Iriun webcam cameras to run after accepting his invitation to join the meeting.

I welcome any other suggestions or comments to try and prevent this deal breaking occurrence. I have the same problem. At first I did like you said, reboot everything and reinstal eveything. I even tried with older versions of both zoom and iriun drivers. While searching through settings video and audio I could see the webcam working, but the next day the same problem occured again. I tried other app: iVCam, and it has work fine so far but, truth be told, I don’t like it as much as iriun webcam, and the pro version is quite expensive.

Someone could have both computer and telephone audio active at the same time. In this case, ask them to either hang up on the telephone call or exit the PC-based audio during the conference by clicking the up arrow icon next to the microphone icon and choosing Leave Computer Audio. Computer or telephone speakers might be too close to each other. Ask the two people that are too close to each other to move apart or shut a door.

You could also ask one of them to leave the audio conference or mute audio on their device; though muting by itself may not always be as effective in reducing the echo.

Using headphones helps reduce the echoing effect, too. Multiple computers with active audio could be in the same conference room. Again, ask the two people that are too close to each other to move apart or close a door. You can also ask one of them to leave the audio conference, mute audio on their device, or wear headphones.

Lagging and freezing usually indicate a problem with your internet connection. On a mobile device, move to an area with a better connection to see if this helps. On PCs, stick with a wired Ethernet connection, if possible. Aim for the right internet speeds for a successful video chat. When talking with multiple people in a team setting, you want the upload speed around 1Mbps and the download speed around Kbps.

You can always check your current speeds with a quick internet speed test. If the speeds are undesirable, repeat Solution 1.

Also, you can check out our tips on how to increase internet speed. To access these options, click the cog icon Settings on the main screen of the Zoom desktop app, or click the arrow icon within the video camera icon during a call and then select Video Settings on the pop-up menu. Sharing your screen is an important part of many Zoom calls. Sharing your screen takes up a lot of bandwidth. Use a wired connection, if available, for the best performance.

Your meeting will then start with only audio, freeing up bandwidth. Your video will not be automatically turned on. When sharing your screen, the viewer can request remote control to help you troubleshoot or explain a process more clearly. This tool is listed as Request Remote Control under View Options and can be accessed at any time while sharing the screen. Chances are, the sharer host is not agreeing to the request for remote control. I tried the steps you have mentioned still not working.

Can you please help. I have tried reinstalling the zoom app and several methods in several forums. Worked for me.
