You clicked on the “Allow” button in the browser, but still the webcam does not work? (OS: Windows 10)

  2. Enter "Privacy Settings" in the search bar

    Go to privacy settings
  3. In the left part, select the item "Microphone"

    In the left part, select Microphone
  4. In the right part of the window, enable the permission for applications to access the microphone

    Allow applications to access the microphone

    After that, refresh the site page and click allow microphone use in your browser again.
