The camera device won't show in the Loola sources list

Sometimes, newly installed devices are not shown in the sources list.

Note: after any install/re-install of a virtual camera device, you must restart Chrome (and sometimes the computer).

Things to try:

  1. Check if the camera shows in

  2. Check if the camera shows in (video call)

  3. Check if the camera shows in other apps (Skype, OBS)

  4. Restart Chrome

  5. Restart the computer

  6. Re-install the virtual camera software

  7. Uninstall other virtual camera devices (sometimes there are device conflicts)

Google Chrome on macOS

Starting version 76.0.3809.87, Google Chrome has made a few changes that prevent Virtual Webcams (ManyCam, Ecamm Live, Wirecast, vMix and others) from appearing on the list of webcam options. The Google team have already confirmed the problem on their end and hopefully they will come up with an update soon. 

In the meantime, we suggest using the Opera browser instead if you need to access to Virtual Camera on Mac.
