Enable Camera / Microphone permissions

Once camera / microphone permission have been denied, often accidentally, the browser won't let VDO.Ninja ask for it again. You'll need to manually change the permission to fix it, or use a different browser. How to change the permission depends on the browser and operation system.
I've provided links to some guides. If these guides are helpful for you, I'll offer a guide in VDO.Ninja to help future users when I detect permissions have been denied.

How to change a site's camera & microphone permissions


  1. 1.
    On your Android device, open the Chrome app

    To the right of the address bar, tap More -> Settings

  5. 5.
    Tap to turn the microphone or camera on or off; If you see the site you want to use under Blocked, tap the site -> Access your microphone -> Allow
If you’ve turned off microphone access on your device, you can control your app permissions on Android to use your mic.
If you're using a Chrome device at work or school, your network administrator can set camera and microphone settings for you. In that case, you can't change them here. Learn about using a managed Chrome device.
