Camera and Microphone not working 

When entering a room you will be prompted to give access to your microphone and camera. However, in some cases Kunjani won't detect a camera or microphone, the devices could be blocked, or the device selection won't save, as demonstrated in the image below. In these cases, there are a few things you can do to get everything working again!

Kunjani Troubleshooting

Accidentally Block Permission?

When Kunjani first asks permission to access your camera and microphone, you may have chosen "Block" instead of "Allow" by mistake.

In this case, please press the camera icon in the browser's address bar to undo the block, then press "Try Again." The icon looks slightly different on different browsers, but here are some examples: 


Update your browser

The first thing to check on is if your browser is up to date. We support the two most recent versions of our supported browsers, so double-check that there isn't an update for the one you're using! There are links below that walk you through updating your browser if you don't know how to

Clear your Cache

Finally, it's possible that this is caused by a stale mic/cam permissions cookie, or possibly because of another application that's taking priority access over Kunjani.

In this case, we recommend clearing your cache and cookies for your entire browser and then restarting your computer. Sometimes a reset of your system environment will resolve these types of issues, so this is a "catch-all" solution before further investigation is required! Instructions for clearing your cache and cookies for our supported browsers are linked below:

Kunjani Troubleshooting

Confirm the Mic/Cam settings for your operating system - MacOS

In MacOS Mojave, Apple has introduced some system-level privacy controls for your mic and camera. These are great for privacy, but it is possible that your browser was mistakenly blocked from accessing your devices. You can check on this and allow your browser to access them from the Security & Privacy section in your System Preferences.

Confirm the Mic/Cam settings for your operating system - Windows

In Windows 10, you're able to set a default Microphone, but there are also system-level Camera permissions on what applications can access your camera. For either of these settings, the first thing to do is open up your system settings by clicking on the Start menu and selecting the Settings gear.

Default Mic

You can adjust the microphone settings by typing "Mic" into the search bar and going to the Sound settings. Scroll down to Input and use the dropdown to select the proper input device

Camera Permissions

Camera permissions can be accessed by typing "Cam" into the search bar. These settings are under your general Privacy settings, but a search is the easiest way to access them. From here, be sure that your browser has permission to access your camera.

Confirm the Mic/Cam settings for your browser


Mic and Cam defaults can be accessed in a number of ways in Chrome, but the easiest is to paste the following links into your URL bar:

Cam:  chrome://settings/content/camera

Mic:  chrome://settings/content/microphone

From these areas, you can manage the default cam/mic for Chrome, and also whitelist or block websites from accessing your cam/mic! Be sure that Kunjani is listed under the Allow section.

In Firefox, you can also use a URL link to get to your privacy settings. Start by going to about:preferences#privacy, and then looking under the Permissions section. Here you can adjust which websites are allowed to use your camera, and you'll want to see Kunjani listed as Allow.

To adjust which camera or microphone Firefox is accessing, you'll need to go into a Kunjani meet. From here, click on the icon that's just to the left of your URL bar, and you'll have a dropdown menu where you can select the camera you want to use.
