Camera Recommendations


CaptureCast Chrome will detect and capture from most built-in web cameras and connected USB cameras. All connected cameras will be seen as a video source in the drop down menu on the CaptureCast Chrome camera settings page. To ensure your camera is working properly. We suggest using the factory software that came with your camera to ensure its working on your operating system. If your OS can detect and work with the camera, chances are CaptureCast Chrome will be able to as well.


We have compiled a listing of recommended USB web cameras below that we have thoroughly tested. These cameras are under a $100 and capture in HD. 

If you are having issues with your camera, ensure that you have the latest driver installed, firmware on the device updated and software updated on your computer.
