When existing meeting video stays on


Hello there, 

While existing a meeting while the webcam is on, doesn't turn off the webcam.

To turn the camera off, I need to go to zoom settings and click on the video tab,  and then exit the setting. 

Any solution for this? 

I'm using :

  • windows 11 pro (Version: 21H2 - Build: 22000.556 - Pack: 1000.22000.556.0)
  • Logi USB webcam

Hi Roy.

Do you mean that when you leave a meeting your camera stays on? Do you have any other programs running that may be using the camera? I see this kind of thing happen when I'm running the Logi Camera Settings app.

@RoyZoom See if this is what you need.

To Turn your video off

  1. Click the “Stop Video” button on the toolbar near the bottom-left corner of the meeting screen.
  2. You’ll see a camera icon with a red slash through it, meaning your video is no longer visible to other participants.
