Hi Michael,

See this picture:

Only an issue in Chrome. Can you look into it please?

You can actually select the "blank" webcam, it's just not displayed.

Also I can not see my own webcam feed, but others can when selecting the blank one.

I'm having the same problem after updating to Windows 10 on Google Chrome and Internet Explorer (edge or whatever it is called) I have no problems viewing my own webcam stream, it's just that the webcam selection box is blank, I can click on the blank area and works as usual.

Not sure if this will help, but I tested the webcam options on a Mac, using Chrome, no go, Safari works fine.

I'll install a Windows 7 VM and try Chrome, EDGE, IE, and FireFox. I did try to adjust my settings in Chrome, nothing seemed to help Updated to Red5-1.0.5 and the latest app plugin just to be sure.

Anyhow if anyone has a solution, please let me know.

^ maybe someone else could test it for me and let me know your results, please? Thanks.

Oh and yes, I installed JDK-8 (version is above the recommend one) for the new webcam plugin installed in apps.

Anyhow, just trying to give all the details I can, strange it worked fine on a Mac on safari but not Chrome.

I'll try to see if it's a Windows 10 problem, but after seeing Safari work perfectly, I'm not so sure now.

Peace out everyone,
