Webcam refuses to work with Roll20


Edited 1600202502
I recently purchased a new webcam to use with Roll20 and other various group call programs. So far this webcam has succesfully worked on both discord and zoom. However, it when used on Roll20, it shows that it is connected, but no video shows up and my audio input is lost, removing even the buttons to mute myself. The only way to get my mic working again is to unplug the webcam. Does anyone have any ideas what might be causing this? I've gone through the webcam troubleshooting guide, but nothing seemed to help. Edit: The webcam model I am using is the aukey fhd, in case that helps.

Does it work through the web apps for those services (Discord and Zoom)? Does it fail to work on Roll20 in both Chrome and Firefox?
Yes, it works on both discord and zoom. I haven't tried running it with roll20 on firefox, let me do that real quick.
Okay, trying firefox produced some interesting results. My microphone appeared to work, and I was able to access my mute and stop video buttons (I was previously unable to access them on chrome) but it still didn't show any video.

You might want to check&nbsp; <a href="https://test.webrtc.org/" rel="nofollow">https://test.webrtc.org/</a> &nbsp;and see if it comes up with any glaring errors. Some missing things, like IPv6 are fine, but it sometimes picks up something that has a more obvious solution.
using the test webrtc site, my setup cleared all hurdles except for Ipv6 and Reflex connectivity. The errors/warnings for Reflex connectivity were: [ INFO ] &nbsp; Gathered candidate of Type: srflx Protocol: udp Address: [ WARN ] &nbsp; Could not connect using reflexive candidates, likely due to the network environment/configuration.
