Get Camera Ready: Your Video Settings

Video chatting has become an essential part of the virtual experience. At oVice, we make it quick and easy to have video chats in your space, without the need to special links, invitations, or other tools. 

To ensure you're ready for video chats, make sure your permissions and preferences are set correctly.


First Things First: Browser Permissions

When you first enter an oVice space (whether as a visitor or as a registered user), you will be  prompted to allow oVice to use your camera - be sure to allow this each time you enter a space, or you will not be able to be seen by others in the space. 




Your Personal Video Settings

In your Profile Settings, check that your camera is associated with the camera on your device. This is especially important if you are using an external camera with your device. 

You can access this setting directly by clicking on the Settings Icon button in the bottom horizontal menu. 

Click on the drop-down to select your preferred camera option.
