Select Webcam in Settings
Using the settings button while on a web-call appears to have the option to choose which webcam you would like to use, but not all webcams show up from the drop down list (only one appears). Users should be able to select the webcam they want to use for the call in the settings.

When is this issue of using an alternative webcam going to be included in the settings for Microsoft Teams? All other similar video-comms tools have it (zoom, Skype, etc) so it must surely be an easy add-in for the techno team at MS?!
Does Microsoft have in their roadmap / planning to add the option on a mobile phone to switch from the integrated phone camera to an external camera as it would be useful with the dex integration from Samsung as mentioned by another user in this forum?
Trying to connect a Fuji mirrorless camera. It works in Google Meet, but won't show up in Teams. Wish I could use it. It makes me look handsome, as opposed to my built-in camera which makes me look like a corpse. I'm on a Mac, using desktop version.

When you open teams there is a little switch on the bottom right which says "switch camera" :)
I was able to fix this by plugging the USB camera directly into the laptop. Problem was that it was plugged into the Kensington docking station. MS Teams was showing camera to user, but black screen to attendees. Settings showed Composite Device, instead of the Microsoft Lifecam. After connecting USB directly into the laptop the settings showed Microsoft Lifecam and it worked! :)

i have a logitech and a kaptivo board setup with a HDMI converter, we did a test, for proof of concept before ordering quantities, all was good until teams update, logitech webcam has no issue, but Kaptivo camera is no more detected in Teams, but work perfectly in camera App, I tried all 9 teams trick to register a camera in teams, with no success
Microsoft teams does not recognize Logitech HD webcam C310 while this webcam works in other application... would you pls help me on this
I just went into device manager & disabled the integrated web camera - now it uses my external usb camera
I tried to use my Z6 nikon camera usb connected on Teams, but it did not available on it
Teams doesn't find the web cam that is plugged in to my PC.
I have a web cam that works automatically for other meeting apps but Microsoft teams doesn't list it and uses only the Epocam, an app I have on my phone, so I have to go and find my phone, wait for the adverts and prop the phone up somewhere - frustrating when I have a web cam perched in the right position above my monitor.
I found in this thread the idea to plug the camera (Logitech C615) directly into my MacBook Air and it worked. When I had it plugged into my dock, it does not work in Teams, but it does work in everything else.
Same problem external monitor and Logitech webcam Brio not recognised by Teams. Only the laptop integrated webcam. Can choose usb headphones.
Try opening a Teams web link using Edge browser, it prompted me for allowing audio and video and then my camera was recognised in the thick client Teams
Does anyone from Microsoft reply to these messages?
We have an increasing number of people that are reporting issues with Webcam not working in Teams.
We have started migrating to O365, and are relatively new to Teams (last 4 weeks).
Microphone works in Teams. Camera works in Zoom and Win 10 Camera app.
Tried reinstalling Teams, tried uninstalling and reinstalling the Win 10 Camera app. Uninstalled, reinstalled, updated camera drivers. Nothing seems to work.
I note that the Camera Privacy Setting for Desktop apps does not show Teams in there. I found a way to manually add it there with a registry change, but camera still does not work.
If we use third party software such as YouCam, the camera works in Teams using this software. But its clunky for the user and not ideal.
Has anyone got any suggestions? We will probably end up raising a ticket with Microsoft under our support contract, but it would be good to resolve before that stage. My last attempt is to recreate the users profile. Never a fun thing for the user though.
Using Teams as a web app (in Edge Chromium browser) as it is MUCH faster than the desktop app. In desktop app though I can choose my professional webcam instead of the cheap one attached to my laptop. Unable to do that with web app. Google Meet - a strictly web app - allows the selection of my webcam. I don't want to use a slow desktop app, prefer web-based. So until Microsoft solves this, I'm sticking to Google Meet for my video meetings.
Anyone solved the problem with C615 camera and TEAMS? My TEAMS recognizes the camera but it doesn't show my video. Really annoying.
Same problem here, OBS Virtual Cam does not show as a device in Teams. It does, however, show in Zoom as a device so I imagine it is installed correctly.
Anyone had to change settings within Teams to get this to work?
I'm having a problem with OBS Virtual Cam as well. I'm using an external monitor and keyboard so the integrated webcam won't work. I set up the virtual webcam and it works in Zoom, but only the integrated camera shows up in the Teams list
i have the same problem as Carel - I'd prefer to use my DeX and have a webcam connected by usb. Would there be a way in which I could do so?
Did you get your PS3Eye camera to work with Teams?
