Default "Error Opening Camera"

"Error Opening Camera (it can be busy)." I'm using my Asus webcam, and I've tried setting it to virtual cam, but neither one works. It keeps stopping before the streaming starts. Procaster worked in previous versions, but 20.3 doesn't work. I've tried setting the recording quality to different things, but that didn't do anything.

Do you have the camera open in any other applications, such as Skype or Hangouts?

Default Our Solution

We went through 2 desktops (xp pro sp3 and win 7 ultimate) and a laptop (win 7 premium), 2 video cards (osprey and asus) and a usb converter, and probably 15 versions of procaster, all to no avail. We finally got around this issue and streaming fine by using Adobe Flash Media Encoder. Works great.
