BLAB — How To Configure Chrome to access your Camera and Microphone

In order for you to Call-In to a Blab, whether you are Hosting or as a Guest, Google Chrome will need to access your Audio & Video source.

NOTE: Ensure you do NOT have Skype or other software which MAY put a permission LOCK on your Camera and/or Microphone. If unsure, go ahead and Quit/Kill all other apps that would typically use your Camera / Microphone. Then Quit/Kill Google Chrome then relaunch ~15sec later. This is important as you want to ensure Chrome has permission to access the Cam/Mic. In some situations, a reboot may be required.

Before you head on over to

  • Copy / Paste this into your Browser address bar and hit enter: chrome://settings/content#media-stream-mic
