Webcam Test allows you to test your camera directly in your browser. It also provides instructions to fix your camera on many devices and with many voice and video calls applications.
There are many reasons why your camera might not be working. You might have camera issues if the application using the camera doesn’t have the correct settings. Or the camera might not function at all on your device, regardless of the application you're using.
After starting the test, if your camera is working you’ll see in your browser the video that the camera is capturing. If your camera is not working, you’ll see an error message. In that case you can check out the instructions to fix camera issues specific to your device or application.
With our webcam test your privacy is totally protected: no video data is sent over the internet. Check out the “No data transfers” section below to learn more.
We develop secure online tools that are cloud-based or that execute locally on your device. Protecting your privacy is one of our main concerns when developing our tools.
Our online tools which execute locally on your device don't need to send your data (your files, your audio or video data, etc.) over the internet. All the work is done locally by the browser itself, making these tools very fast and secure. To achieve this we use HTML5 and WebAssembly, a form of code that is run by the browser itself allowing our tools to execute at near-native speed.
We work hard to make our tools run locally on your device since avoiding sending data over the internet is more secure. Sometimes however this is not optimal or possible for tools which for example require high processing power, display maps aware of your current location, or allow you to share data.
Our cloud-based online tools use HTTPS to encrypt your data sent to and downloaded from our cloud infrastructure, and only you have access to your data (unless you have chosen to share it). This makes our cloud-based tools very secure.
The infrastructures that support the internet and the cloud have an impact on the environment. The cloud is in fact a multitude of servers powered by electricity and the production of this electricity leads to varying degrees to carbon dioxide emissions. We implement the following strategies in order to make sure that our tools have the lowest possible impact on the environment.
We work to reduce the amount of data sent to and downloaded from the internet. Whenever possible, we develop our online tools so that they execute locally on your device without the need to send large amounts of data.
We store as little data as possible (and for the shortest required time) on our cloud storage infrastructure.
Our servers are scaled on-demand, so they never use more power than needed.
Last but not least we carefully select the locations of our cloud infrastructures so that a maximum of the energy used is carbon free: at least 75% of the energy used to power our servers is carbon-free.
