Mac: Camera Not Available

| Comments

My Macbook Pro sometimes doesn't detect it's web camera when I'm trying to join a video call and it's painful to have to reboot the machine to fix it. A simpler way (especially if you have root access to your machine) is to kill VDCAssistant from the command line.

sudo killall VDCAssistant

Once you're done, restart the application that was attempting to use your web camera :)
