How to Get Adobe Flash Player 10 Working With Webcam in Ubuntu 11.04

5:14 PM

I haven't been able to figure out how to get my webcam working with Adobe Flash Player 10 in Ubuntu 11.04 Natty. For some reason the permissions window never comes up and the settings menu is greyed out. I tried to go to global settings but the link there doesn't work either. I know the driver is working because it works in other applications that utilize my webcam. From what I've seen, I'm not the only one having this issue.


Today I found the answer - and it's a lot easier than you may think!


1. Go at least once to the website you want to use your webcam on and try to use it.

2. Follow this link.

3. Select the website you want to use with your webcam from the list of websites.

4. Select the bullet next to "Always allow".


That's all there is to it! Now you can use your webcam! :)
