This doc has instructions on how to enable webcam for Chrome, Internet Explorer, Edge, Firefox, Safari and Brave.

For every browser there are three cases that are covered:

  1. Opening Adaface.com for first time and never denied/ allowed access before
  2. Confirming that webcam access is allowed
  3. Opening Adaface.com for second time and have denied access before

Chrome

Never denied/ allowed access before:

You would be presented with a popup similar to screenshot like this: Click on 'Allow'

Confirming that webcam is working:

Make sure you are present in the stream and not your wall like in this picture.

In the webcam instructions popup, you would see live video stream of your webcam. If it is what you would expect to see, we are good to go! Click on the button below the stream to dismiss and proceed to chat.

If you are unable to see stream of your webcam, confirm you have given access to your camera by clicking on the lock button besides the address. It should say "Camera: Allow". If it says "Denied", follow the instructions in next step.

Denied access before:

If you have denied access once, then even on reload, Chrome won't show the permissions popup again. In this scenario, you can either

  1. click on video cam symbol on the extreme end of address bar and click on "Always allow https://www.adaface.com/ to access your camera". You need to RELOAD after you change the setting.
  1. go to chrome://settings/content/camera?search=camera. click on "https://www.adaface.com". Under "Permissions" > "Camera", change permission to "Allow" and RELOAD adaface chat page you are on.
  2. click on lock symbol beside the address bar and change "Camera: Denied" to "Camera: Allow" and RELOAD

Safari

We support Safari. Instructions to be added soon.

Brave

Brave browser is built on Chromium and same instructions for Chrome apply here. Only additional step is to enable "autoplay video" after giving access. Without this, even if you give Camera permissions, you wouldn't be able to see the video in the instructions popup. To enable this, click on autoplay icon beside the video icon in address bar. Click on "Always allow autoplay..." and "Done".  You need to RELOAD after changing the settings.
