Unhappy Camera being used by some other application


I'm testing my webcam to broadcast an event in the following days. I'll be using Studio and will have three different cameras, connected to my team producers' accounts.

I've encountered other people with the same problem.
Already disabled Skype, Google Talk and other services that might be using my webcam.
Already tried the regedit solution, and it's all good.

However, "camera in use" message is still showing up in Livestream Studio.

Is there any help you could give me?
Thanks in advance for your patience!

What type of camera are you using (include make and model number) and how is the camera connected to your computer? Have you tried loading Studio and the camera immediately after a fresh reboot of the computer?

I would suggest using Procaster to broadcast and reporting back whether or not you experience the same issue.

Default Webcam In Use By Another Application Message

App: Livestream Studio - Notebook: HPPavilion dv7 with built in webcam. Windows 7 64bit in Chrome Browser.

LS Message appears after recognizing webcam then asking user to 'activate' webcam. Click activate and message says "Webcam in use by another application" which it isn't! Neither Skype nor any other webcam app open. Please advise fix. Thanks, Ivan
