Click 'allow' when you see a prompt in the browser

Is your webcam not working? Are you not seeing an image or any information? No problem, just follow these simple steps and we'll get your webcam working in a jiffy:
If you are using an external webcam, double check that it is plugged in via USB socket and that its connection cable is not damaged. When plugging in a new accessory like the webcam, your computer typically will notify you through a small audio signal or an on screen notification. For Mac users, you can check hardware status at: About This Mac → System Report → Devices. For Windows, navigate to the Control Panel, and select 'View Devices and Printers' to see current devices.
Make sure that all of your software is up to date. This includes both your operating system, webcam drivers, and software that you use it with. In case you are using an external webcam, check whether it is compatible with the software you are trying to use.
Some webcam models have an "ON/OFF" switch - make sure that if yours has one - it is set to "ON"
Only have a single application open that has access to your camera feed. Having more than one application consuming camera feed can cause the camera not to show up correctly.

You can use VEED’s webcam test and online mirror apps as a mirror. It will use your laptop’s camera or an external camera you’ve connected. Your laptop’s webcam comes preinstalled on your device. That means you typically don’t need to install software to use it. Any application that requires or allows you to use your laptop’s webcam will automatically activate it, though you may have to give permission to those apps to access your webcam.
Absolutely! Just use VEED’s online mirror app, allow the app to access your camera, and you can view yourself as others see you when your webcam is on.
What they say about VEED
Veed is a great piece of browser software with the best team I've ever seen. Veed allows for subtitling, editing, effect/text encoding, and many more advanced features that other editors just can't compete with. The free version is wonderful, but the Pro version is beyond perfect. Keep in mind that this a browser editor we're talking about and the level of quality that Veed allows is stunning and a complete game changer at worst.
I love using VEED as the speech to subtitles transcription is the most accurate I've seen on the market. It has enabled me to edit my videos in just a few minutes and bring my video content to the next level

The Best & Most Easy to Use Simple Video Editing Software! I had tried tons of other online editors on the market and been disappointed. With VEED I haven't experienced any issues with the videos I create on there. It has everything I need in one place such as the progress bar for my 1-minute clips, auto transcriptions for all my video content, and custom fonts for consistency in my visual branding.
