I have a problem with the webcam, what can I do?
First, make sure that the drivers for the webcam is installed (they came with a CD when you bought it, otherwise you can probably find the latest drivers on the manufacturer's website).
The webcam must be plugged into your computer before you launch Adobe Connect. When you are in a room in Adobe Connect, you can go to menu to the top left and choose “Meeting> Manage My Settings-> Select Camera...” and there check that the right camera is selected.
It is also important that you have no other programs running at the same time that can use the webcam (for example the program that came with your webcam) then the computer only can deal with the web cam is used in one program at the same time.
