Unity detected webcam but black screen

October 27, 2016 - 12:47am #1

I am currently using Vuforia 6 in Unity 5.4, tried to test the webcam in play mode with both Unity 32 and 64 bits.

I have followed most of the online solutions and still can't get my laptop build-in "BisonCam, NB Pro" webcam showing up in Unity playmode.


At first, WebCamBehaviour script on ARCamera was showing "No Webcam profile has been found for your webcam model".

So, I added code below in the profile xml located at "Assets\Vuforia\Editor\WebcamProfiles\".

<webcam deviceName = "BisonCam, NB Pro">

... code ...



This solved the problem, however when I press play in Unity, the screen was black.

Then, I used WebCamTexture scripts to check if the webcam was found during play mode. It was found.

Anyone have any idea what is wrong with the setup? Appreciate it much!

It's 2018 and I'm still getting the same problem.
