I have Asus G75VW which has a very disturbing issue, webcam works fine with internet explorer but it won't work with Firefox , Opera or Google Chrome, I have the latest drivers for a cam and troubleshooting is not getting any problem, what could be the problem? How do I get the webcam to work with all my web browsers?
Webcam works fine with internet explorer but not with Firefox
To activate your webcam when you are using Mozzila Firefox, Google Chrome and Opera you need to make some settings and install some Add-Ons.
For Opera you have to go to Settings or Press Alt+P then you go to Websites tab, go to Media Tab ( located last, at the bottom page).
At Microphone tab check Default.
Camera tab – Choose your webcam.
Check "Ask me when a site requires access to my camera and microphone (recommended)", and close the Settings Tab.
For Mozzila Firefox you'll have to install an Add-On. Cam Notifier Add-On. Restart you web browser Mozzila Firefox and your camera will work and will ask for your permission to start.
Google Chrome also uses an Add-On for webcam. Access Google Chrome Web Store and download the Add-On. Restart the browser and the webcam will run only with your permission.
The picture below shows you how to make the settings on the Opera browser:
