Hey @Grighser, if you don't mind, can you screenshot the error you're seeing when the "camera is being used by a USB device"? Is this a Zoom message being prompt or a Windows message? Do you mind sharing as well the camera you're specifically using?

Hey @Grighser, just checking in on that camera USB error you were having. Were you able to get this resolved? If not, willing to help find a solution. 🙂

Hello, I am having the same problem. Zoom will only let me choose “USB Video Device” as my camera system. I have been using Zoom for a few years. Never had a problem until now. Never used a USB camera. Any ideas? I have already deleted and installed Zoom again, restarted my computer and followed steps for Windows 11.
