13 Hi Bill,
15 I have been using MS Teams on Linux for over a couple of months now and the
16 camera does work for me.
18 The settings I have are:
19 - User added to the groups "audio", "video" and "usb"
21 In Teams, I did have to configure the devices, the settings can be found by
22 clicking on your "avatar", top-right of the window with your initials. (Mine
23 says JR)
24 Then select "Settings" and go to "Devices"
25 I seem to remember it didn't auto-select my camera, but the preview should,
26 when selected, actually work.
28 Here you can also select a headset as audio-device.
30 Also, make sure there is nothing else using the camera at the same time.
32 Do take note, the Linux version is lacking several features that the other
33 "native" clients have. Notably:
34 - Only 4 camera-views at the same time (instead of 9, I believe)
35 - No background-blur or image
37 This means, you only get to show your real background or leave the camera off/
38 covered.
