    Webcam stops to work on Chrome and Teams


    Hello everyone. Following an automatic Windows 10 update, my webcam stopped working on the Google Chrome browser and on the Microsoft Teams platform. I tried all the solutions searched on the web, like uninstalling and reinstalling the webcam. It seems that the problem is that the webcam is being used by another program.
    I tried a brand new webcam, and it gives me the same error.

    As I said, I tried several of the classic solutions found on the net without success.

    What do you recommend me?

    Windows 10 21H2 version (build SO 19044.2965)

    Welcome to the Forum

    Open Device Manager. Is there any yellow alerts of missing drivers?

    What was the error code that Teams and Chrome were spitting out? Is the error still in system logs under Event Viewer?

    Teams seems to not read the webcam at all, while in Chrome if I try to use the webcam on a site like Pixect - Take photos and make videos with camera online it gives me this error

    Prior to this automatic Win 10 update, the webcam works great in both Teams and Chrome.

    I did what you asked me. Some devices, such as the PSU, couldn't find its name.
