Webcam troubleshooting: We will go from the easiest way to solve the black screen your webcam view will show in chat. How to fix common problems on our webcam chat service and for others.

I’ve found these simple steps to webcam troubleshooting quite easy to do and fix most webcam problems on cam sites easy.

1. Webcam troubleshooting Step one.

Simply try a different web browser, I highly recommend Google Chrome, it’s what all of us use here a Group Webcam Chat. We have tested many webcams on many websites and have found Google’s browser the best choice overall. (It uses its own version of Adobe Flash and works well even on Linux-based operating systems)

Granted, still check out Firefox and Internet Explorer (IE) if you continue to have trouble with your particular webcam. They are easy to download and often is a quick fix to problems you’re having with any Adobe Flash-based website that allows webcam access / viewing.

We highly recommend Google Chrome while using our webcam chat it has worked the best in our tests.

You can download Google Chrome from the link below.

2. Webcam troubleshooting Step two.

Make sure you have allowed access to your webcam to our website and make sure you set the correct inputs you wish to use. (microphone jack in use for audio and webcam or camera you wish to use)

Thus, when you visit a new webcam site you will get an Allow or Deny access Pop-Up displayed, looks just like the one pictured below on our website.

To do this on our website left click the anywhere on the Adobe Flash page.

Adobe Flash will display a pop-up window that looks like the picture below anytime a streaming server wishes to use your webcam. (This is the only one you can trust, never download updates for flash other than the official Adobe website!) This is just a allow access windows that come from the software installed on your computer. It always looks the same, good way to spot fakes.

You can also go into your Windows control panel, find Adobe Flash and clear all its settings. This will clear it’s stored data and often can improve performance. You could have accidentally blocked your favorite site.

Webcam troubleshooting can be a pain to deal with at times, but we always manage to get them going, so help is available if you get stuck.

If everything is successful and your webcam is working, consider going over the options our site offers you.

Remember you can always right-click on your webcam view window and it will pull up your current settings.

Sadly some webcam troubleshooting problems come down to your drivers / software that operates the device itself.

If all else fails, if possible borrow or try a new webcam, we’ve found that a problem, sometimes. Boils down to  just old, badly written drivers or outdated ones.

Also, keep you Adobe Flash up to date, this is highly important these days, for security reasons, compatibility and software bugs and source code repair.

Be sure to visit the real Adobe Flash update site or you could be downloading a virus or worse. Never trust a website that tells you to update Adobe Flash with a pop-up message. The allow or deny screen is normal, that is for security. Others pop-up messages are viruses or worse that can really damage your computer or compromise your computers data. It’s a commonly used trick these days, the link above is the real Adobe Flash player update website.

When you install Flash, set it to check for updates automatically. You can also find the update option in your Microsoft Windows Control Panel. Google chrome keeps itself up to date, thus, there are no worries using it.

Finding the real website is quite easy just search for it. Or just scroll back up to the top of the page, we have included the real hyperlink.
