There is plenty of technical detail in some of the setup instructions for using JamKazam. Thankfully, using a webcam with JamKazam is very simple. Here's the summary:


  • If you have a built-in webcam on your computer, you can just use that webcam for video in sessions, and you don't need to do anything to set this up.
  • If you want to use an external webcam that is connected to your computer, you can just use that webcam for video in sessions, and you don't need to do anything to set this up.
  • And if you want to use multiple webcams in a JamKazam session, either cutting between them, or having multiple webcams run and stream video at the same, you can also do that, and again there is no special webcam setup needed. 
  • While we haven't done it ourselves, we've also seen some members of our community using smartphones with special apps that make them look like a webcam, also usable with the JamKazam app.



That's it for setup instructions. More information on how you can use video features in JamKazam sessions is available in this video help article.
