This is specific to Chromium based browsers and Windows 10, I have just done a new install of windows 10 on a separate SSD and the problem persists. I am using a desktop computer with an Advent AWCAMHD15 1080P webcam (not the best webcam but was the only one available in the store within my budget), I am unable to access the webcam from inside any chromium or chrome browser, even the latest Edge does not work, although my Snowball microphone does work on voice calls only. I have tried us

  9. Good Afternoon, I am sure this question has been answered many times but I'm kind of looking for answers tailored to myself. I used to do a lot of pc gaming in my day but that all changed when I started a family. I now own a nintendo switch and was excitedly awaiting xcloud on the switch but I understand now that's not happening. So I have dusted off my pc and plugged it into my TV and purchased myself a wired controller certified for xbox and Windows 10 from Power A, now i know proper pc gaming is best with a keyboard and mouse but thought I wou
  10. My local pc shop is doing the 3600x for the same price as the 3600 if you buy with mobo and minimum 16gb ram so hence why I'm getting the 3600x
