Another mysterious problem cropped up and I have no idea how to debug it.
Google Hangouts says ‘Camera not working’ when hovering over the camera icon which is shown in red with a line crossing it.
The option to let websites access the camera is enabled and no exceptions are specified. The webcam actually works on other
sites such as Snapshot (https://htmlchat.net/snapshot).
It also works outside of the browser with VLC. So it is working and recognized by OpenSUSE 42.3, only not in Google Hangouts!
It is a Logitech USB camera. I do not have the model number but it says ‘BrightLight and RightSound Technology’. Tried with a
USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 port, same results.
Any idea what is happening and how to fix this?
