[Solved]No camera detected

  • Hi! I moved from Chrome to Opera - I really like it 🙂 The only issue I've encountered so far is that the camera is not detected - on websites which use the camera I'm not even ask about the permissions. I checked it on Chrome and FF and it works.

    Details:
    Opera version: 71.0.3770.271
    Computer : Lenovo X1 Carbon 6 gen (with two cameras - one is IR)
    OS: Ubuntu 20.4

    Any ideas what might be wrong?
    Thanks!

  • Same happened to me.

    I'm opera user since many years ago, I love (and support) it.
    Today I upgraded from Opera 71 to 72, I removed the previous config, cache, etc. and configured from scratch (sync user).
    When I tried to join google meet it shows that camera is not detected.

    Details:
    Opera version: 72.0.3815.148
    OS: KDE Neon 5.19 (ubuntu 20.04 I guess)

  • I finally solved mine. (I'm Linux user)
    I installed the last stable version (72.0.3815.148) via snap, and I had the same problem: camera was working in Chrome, but not detected in Opera.
    I uninstalled in snap and re-installed via apt repositories, and it worked.

    Hope this helps.

  • I have installed Opera via snap, it turns out you need to grant permission to Opera so it can access the camera. @SebastianGM thanks for a clue!
