FAQ-21: HypermediaLAB does not recognize my webcam and/or my microphone
For the recognition of external devices, check your browser settings and then select again, in step 2, the webcam and microphone devices you wish to use by clicking on the Mic + Webcam button.
FAQ-22: HypermediaLAB doesn’t recognize my camera while using Chrome
It is a native Chrome issue and has nothing to do with external cameras themselves. The problem is that when there are several cameras, Chrome, sometimes (not always), does not allow you to choose the webcam you want to use. This means that it can force you to use the internal webcam of the computer or directly the opposite, it can force you to use the external camera.
The normal procedure (which works perfectly in any other browser) is that when there are several webcams connected, Chrome allows you to select the webcam you want to use in its configuration. The problem is precisely that this does not happen and by derivation, HypermediaLAB connects the webcam that Chrome tells it. HypermediaLAB does not have the power to bypass Chrome’s camera settings.
FAQ-23: My video does not get processed in the Video Library or takes longer than expected
Check that the extension of the files you wish to upload to HypermediaLAB are video extensions. If the processing and uploading process is taking longer than expected, it may be due to the weight of the videos or the internet connection.
