Recently, some of users tell us that their web browsers such as Chorme, Internet Explorer as well as Firefox could not display camera image to them. There is no sound and picture but they can move the camera from the computer.
If you encounter this problem, you need to download a video plug-in first.
Please open the following webpage and download the corresponding plugin into your computer:

BUT, If the screen still remains black, please check here.

3. Please check whether you have software which call Ad Muncher or not on your computer ? if have, please try to shutdown it, as it may stop adverts on web browsers and this will prevent the video from working.
