How To Switch Between Multiple Cameras

If you may have multiple cameras plugged into your device (the built-in camera and an external USB webcam, for instance) you might need to switch between them for recording different types of videos - instrument vs talking head, for example.

Choosing which camera to use for a recording is easy:

  1. Click this link or paste into Chrome: chrome://settings/content/camera

  2. Select the camera from the dropdown (see image)

Now hit the red Record Video button in LessonMate to use the new camera. You may need to refresh the LessonMate page if it doesn't update automatically.

Note: You can switch camera to record a new video but you cannot switch cameras during a recording.
