Failing to initialize the video capture device

Sat Oct 16, 2021 2:13 pm

Hello, Please help with this issue as I can't use the webcam overlay feature. Whether I try "Device Recording mode" or check "Add webcam overly.." the webcam doesn't seem to work. Tried all available settings, and also tried to uninstall and reinstall the webcam. My laptop's webcam works fine with all other applications. It's integrated webcam, Realtek. I use a registered version of Bandicam.

Hi,
I have tried everything listed in the FAQ however, I still get the message?
I can see the camera on the preview screen but when I select the device I get the same message?
OS is W10 32bit

Any help would be appreciated.

Hello Batman,

Thank you for your reply.

If your camera device is being used by another program, it might happen.
Please exit other webcam programs, and try again.
Also please make sure that the webcam overlay option is turned off.

Thank you.

No webcam software in use, overlay option is turned off, still the same.

Why can I see it in the preview window but not in the actual window?
