External camera doesn't work through Droidcam

Hi, im using desktop app to make a video conference on Zoom. But the app doesnt recocognice my camera, im using my android phone as camera with an app called DroidCam, but Prezi Video app shows that i dont have any camera connected.

This camera works in chrome version, also works in Zoom, Skype and other apps. I have this problem only with Prezi Video desktop app.

Please help


Hi @Fernando_Orellana_Di, it seems like a new issue. Could you tell me if you are using a Mac or a Windows system? Do you have any screenshots showing the issue?

Hi, I have the same issue here, I’ve started a topic at Prezi video community (no answer so far):


I’m using Windows 10.

Hi @antonio_carregal, thanks for posting this here as well, I’m reporting this to our developers. I’m going to remove your other thread so we don’t have duplicates. :slight_smile:

Is there any kind of error message when you try to use your phone via Droidcam or Prezi Video just simply doesn’t recognise the camera?

Olá @Andrey_Da_Costa_Mose, você poderia nos informar qual é a mensagem de erro que você recebe? Você pode nos enviar uma captura de tela do problema?

Exactly, it’s not listed. I’ve even tried to connect the phone to the computer with an USB cable instead of WiFi, but it won’t work. Maybe Prezi considers it as another virtual cam?

Hi @Gregor_Schamschula, @antonio_carregal, thanks for the detailed answer.
I’ll forward this feedback to our developers so they can check on what is the issue.

Estou com igual problema que o Fernando. Uso o aplicativo Desktop Prezi Vídeo para fazer videoconferência no Zoom e Meet, porém o aplicativo não reconhece minha câmera, estou usando meu telefone android como câmera(webcam). Uso dois aplicativos chamado DroidCam e também o Iriun Webcam. O aplicativo Prezi Video não reconhece nenhum dos dois aplicativos. Mostra a mensagem: >> SEM CÂMERAS DISPONÍVEIS - Não foi possível encontrar uma câmera conectada ao seu computador. Por favor, tente conectar uma e atualizar a lista de câmeras. <<

I have a similar problem. I use a mac, and I’m using an external android camera through camlink into my mac. It works on all apps except prezi. I use it on zoom, Ecamm Live, and other apps without an issue. In prezi the camera shows up in the menu of cameras, but when I click on it continues to display the native Mac camera. I checked and Prezi has access to cameras in the Privacy and Security section of the Mac. I hope this gets resolved. I can’t use Prezi with my new awesome camera. I want to integrate it.

same issue here i’m using Iriun webcam on my android phone and prezi doesn’t recognize it . any help please ?

Hi @Doaa_Bashier, could you tell me if you are using it on a Windows PC? Does Prezi Video see the camera and cannot connect, or is it missing from the list?

Hi, @Bart ! Do you know if it’s solved? Can DroidCam or Irium app be used in Prezi Video?

Hi @Fernanda_Takase, I have tested Iriun with an iPhone and a Macbook Pro and it works fine with Prezi Video, both the browser version and the desktop application.
I’ll see if I can test Droidcam as well and update this thread if I have any news!
