🌐 USB Compatibility
Our webcams are designed for USB 3.1 Gen 1 or Gen 2. Ensure that your Mac, and any hubs, adapters, or monitors you're using, are compatible with this standard. Incompatible USB ports might cause intermittent disconnections.
🔌 Inspect Physical Connections & Test Direct Connection
- Ensure all cables are securely connected. Loose connections can lead to sudden disconnections.
- If you're using an external hub, adapter, or monitor, ensure they're securely connected to your Mac.
- Bypass any hubs or adapters by connecting the webcam directly to your Mac. This can help identify if the issue is related to these external devices.
🔄 Reinstall Opal Composer
Sometimes, software conflicts can cause the webcam to crash. Consider reinstalling Opal Composer:
⬇️ Update MacOS and Other Software
Ensure you have the latest drivers installed for your webcam and that your MacOS and meeting software are up-to-date.
🛠️ Adjust Video Settings
High-resolution video can be more demanding on your webcam. Consider lowering the video quality in the meeting software settings if you experience frequent crashes.
🌐 Firewalls and Interfering Applications
Some firewalls or security software may block access to the webcam. Ensure that Opal Composer is whitelisted or allowed in your firewall settings.
Other applications running in the background might be trying to access the webcam simultaneously. Close any unnecessary applications, especially those that might use the camera, and try again.
