"Your camera and microphone are blocked"

  • Win 10, latest update. Installed latest stable Opera update last night. This morning for a meeting I got a "Your camera and microphone are blocked" with I could hear and see them, but not the reverse. I tried my iPad as well (wi-fi), but the other person said the blockage was still there. So maybe that means it's not Opera specific. In any case, I didn't have the time then to check, but looking now at the screen under Settings > Privacy and Security, things look ok to me, as they do in Windows Settings (everything appropriate is On). See anything in the following screenshot?!AqsCKHVTj0ydpm7seqQzUObDQmcT?e=PWwAKp


  • Don't see anything wrong there.

    Goto the URL opera://settings/content/camera. Does it show the name of your webcam device? If so, I would think things are fine on your end.

  • @burnout426 Yes it shows the name of the webcam. Won't know until next week if anything I've done has solved it for Zoom works.
