Unable to activate webcam

Post by zorzi » 2019-05-07, 06:25

Hello,

Pale Moon can't reach/open webcam for chat sites. For instance:

https://bazoocam.org/

Has someone the same problem ?

Thanks.

A script on that page is looking for "navigator.mediaDevices". I suspect it's trying to use WebRTC, which isn't supported in Pale Moon.

Thanks for answering. It used to work with previous versions of PM.

Pale Moon has never supported WebRTC, AFAIK. So if it used to work, it's likely because the website changed over to WebRTC from whatever they used to use.

But Ascrod, websites never change we just break them with our incompetence while being insecure.
