1. Log in to Zoom
2. Click your user icon (top right) and choose settings

3. Select Video setting
4. Make sure there is a camera selected below the preview image
  • if there's no camera, then you either do not have a camera or passthrough is not enabled*
5. Click the Advanced button at the bottom of video settings
6. Change the Media Capturing Method to 'Media Foundation'
7. Quit Zoom
  • right click zoom in the taskbar and select Quit Zoom
8. Reopen Zoom
