Unable to select any options on a Web Video (in both Firefox and Chrome)

Asked by mrJimmymathew on 2012-05-08

Hi Team,

I'm a frequent visitor of Omegle website, but since my latest upgrade to 12.04, or with the latest software update, I'm unable to enable my Video in this website -- both in Chrome as well as in Firefox. I can, however, watch the other person, while I'm unable select any options in the pop-up window.

I tried to uninstall flash player and re-install it , as I get a Adobe flash player warning - "Allow Omegle to access your web cam and Microphone".

I can try to paste a screen shot of that page if that helps.

Request you to kindly look into this.

Regards,
Jim

Hi Sam,

Thanks for the link! The workaround is pretty easy and, ultimately what
matters to me is - end of the day I should be able to configure the webcam
settings.

Thanks a tone once again. You can close the Ticket!
