The webcam test is used to check the webcam or camera of your phone, laptop, or desktop. Also, it directly works from your browser. Hence, you will not need to download the third-party software or application to use it. Also, it's very secure as everything happens locally within the web browser. No data is sent to the web servers.
In addition, the tool perfectly works with all operating systems. It can easily detect any kind of problem that your webcam may be facing. Hence, it becomes a very useful tool for diagnosing your webcam.
You can also take screenshots using the tool through webcam. In addition, it also detects the microphone configuration and checks whether your microphone is working fine or not. So, you can also use it as an online mic test.
Follow the simple steps below:
So, you used the webcam testing tool and found that your webcam is not working. Try these quick solutions to fix the issues.
Your webcam will not start in the browser if you have denied the media device permission when the browser asked.
To fix it just go to the browser settings → site settings and enable the camera and microphone permission. In some web browsers, you can directly enable the permission by pressing the camera icon on the search bar.
Try cleaning your camera to remove the blurry effect. If the problem still occurs then there must be some internal issue. Also, check the camera settings for resolution.
If you have granted the permission and the webcam is still not working then there can be issues with the device drivers. Go to the Device Manager and reinstall or update the drivers and try again.
In many systems, multiple usages of the webcam are not allowed. Therefore, you need to turn off all other applications that are using the webcam.
If you are using an external webcam then check your camera cable. Maybe it is not properly connected or something wrong with it.
If the picture is not clearly visible, try adjusting the light or brightness on your device.
If your system has multiple cameras then you need to select the right webcam for testing.
