Resolution

If the webcam stream won't connect:

When you join the Live Studio, make sure your browser is allowing the Live Studio to access your webcam and microphone.

To allow your browser access to your camera and microphone:

  1. At the top of the Live Studio window, to the left side of the web address, click the Lock Lock button button.
  2. Next to Camera and Microphone, select Allow.

    Chrome settings show camera and microphone allowed

If you still can't connect your webcam stream, close any programs that could be using your webcam and microphone and make sure none of these programs are running in the background.
