Fix Microphone & Video without restarting your Mac

Every once in awhile I jump into a google hangouts/zoom call and my video feed or microphone is not working 😡.

For my own sake and to avoid googling this in the future, here’s how to fix the issue.

Fix your video

Open your terminal and type:

sudo killall VDCAssistant

Fix your mic/audio

Open your terminal and type:

sudo killall coreaudiod
