Webcam issue in FireDragon | Apple product: MacBookPro12,1

I have an issue with my webcam on FireDragon. Might be a setting, im not sure, but would like to see if I can get some assistance.

I have a 1080p USB webcam hooked up to my laptop, and when I open up FireDragon and try to use the webcam on a site, it will initialize it and pull and image, but thats it. It will not continue with the feed, it pulls the initial image and stops. I tested this in Firefox ESR and it works just fine.

Sorry about that. I was just about to edit the post and do that but you did it for me :slight_smile:

On Garuda?
Post logs from when this was working fine.
Also post logs from when it was not (with FireDragon).
Have you tested any other application using this camera? OBS?

Sites are very much dependent on their web developers, when it comes to functionality and especially multimedia. It's not the best method to check if your camera is well functioning.

Anyway, if there is a bug, we need info/logs to bring it up. :man_shrugging:

I actually encounter the same issue, but the person on the other end can see me fine. Try removing all of your extensions and try again
