How to Grant Browser Access to Your Mic or Camera

Last updated on August 4, 2022

 

If you’ve blocked Crowdcast from accessing your camera and microphone, you’ll need to change your browser permissions to grant them access again.

Keep in mind that, if you're on a shared network like at an office or school, your network administrator may need to set your camera and microphone settings for you.

Expand the section below based on the browser you are currently using:

Chrome

1. Open a new tab and then copy and paste the following text in blue in the URL bar and press Enter:
