🔌 Check the USB Connection
Ensure the webcam's USB cable is securely connected to your Mac. A loose connection can prevent the webcam from powering on.
If you're using hubs, adapters, or monitors, ensure they support USB 3.1 Gen 1 or Gen 2 for optimal performance.
💡 Indicator Light Behavior
The indicator light on your webcam should illuminate when it's active. If it's not, it might indicate a power or connection issue.
🔄 Restart Your Mac
Sometimes, a simple restart can help recognize connected devices and resolve minor software glitches.
🌐 USB Port Check
Try connecting the webcam to a different USB port on your Mac. Some ports might malfunction or not provide adequate power.
🖥 Test on Another Device
Connect your webcam to another device to determine if the issue is specific to your Mac or the webcam itself.
🔄 Reinstall Opal Composer
Software conflicts can sometimes prevent hardware from functioning correctly.
