USB Camera Not Activating

Copper Contributor

I've been using Windows Server 2019 on a device that acts as both a workstation and a server. However, I haven't been able to get my camera working in either Zoom or Discord. Discord just shows a black screen while Zoom either does the same, or gives an error about unable to activate the camera. The camera works fine on my Windows 10 laptop, so I know the hardware works.

Your best resource will be the device manufacturer to troubleshoot problems with the hardware. A likely reason is they may not support a server operating system.
