Before you can use your webcam in BeFunky, you’ll need to change your browser settings to give us permission.
This guide will show you how to update your browser settings:
There are a few different way's to allow webcam access to BeFunky.
Here is one way to allow access on Chrome. When you go to Open > More > Webcam you will get a notice from Chrome that 'www.befunky.com' wants to 'Use your camera':
Click on "Allow" to give access to Chrome and have your webcam pop up.
If this does not work for you, try accessing permissions through the Chrome preferences.
Step 1: Go to your Google Chrome Preferences.
Step 2: Scroll down to Privacy and Security. Click on Content Settings.
Step 3: Click Camera.
Step 4: Unblock BeFunky.
Step 5: Close your preferences window, refresh the page, and you are good to go!
When trying to use the webcam, you will notice that you can still take a picture even though the webcam is not functioning. Taking a picture will capture a translucent image, and not an image from the webcam itself.
Step 1: In the upper left corner of the window, click on the small camera icon.
Step 2: Click the X to remove the temporary block on BeFunky's access to your webcam.
Step 3: Reload the page, and select the webcam from the drop down menu. Click Allow.
Your webcam should work normally.
