Additional Information to Provide


You can provide additional information that can also help us perform an investigation quickly. Great information to include:
  1. The brand, model, and/or type of device you’re using (USB webcam, Android/Tablet, iPhone/iPad, etc.)
  2. The version or your operating system you’re using (i.e.: Windows 10, MacOS Big Sur, Android 11, iOS 14, etc.)
  3. Your browser (Chrome, Edge, Firefox, Safari, Opera, etc.)
  4. A screenshot of the issue or any error messaging received (Note: it must be smaller than 50 mb in size)
  5. The last are simple checks for any camera/microphone issues you might encounter:
  • Ensured permission has been granted for your Camera and Microphone through your preferred browser: Use your camera & microphone
  • Ensured that no other programs are using your Camera or Microphone (you can find information on how to perform this check by searching online)
  • Temporarily disabling any Anti-Virus programs that might disable camera and microphone access (even if you’re already granted it)
  • Tested your camera is working with Online Mic Test

  1. Mobile camera is not properly connecting

    I have been using my mobile Android device for spelltable for half a year. Until about 3 days ago, there had been no issues at all. Now whenever I use my mobile camera, the lobby screen on my pc still shows the QR code and is black even after successfully scanning and logging in with my phone. I am able to record myself and my table with my phone but none of it registers with the spelltable lobby open in my pc. There is just the QR code which I already scanned and is still waiting for me to connect…

  2. Spelltable camera feed bug: feed shows black bars on each side, obstructing left and right edge of the video

    Camera: HD Pro Webcam C920, front-facing laptop camera, any other device I tried it on

    Issue: A few days ago (at the time of writing) black bars suddenly appeared on the side of the video feed, obstructing the left and right side of the video. This has been the case for every browser that I have tried it on (Firefox, Chrome, Edge) and for every device I connected.

    Image 1: how it was before, you can see the left and right edges of my playmat

    Image 2: you can see how the black bars obstruct the left and right, the…

  5. food and fellowship

    Most cards from the food and fellowship deck do not work and seems to be a problem for awhile according to posts on reddit for all the lotr decks. Used other decks to test and they all worked fine, was just the lotr deck.

  6. Logitech Webcam Shutting Off Randomly

    I got a new Logitech C920X Pro HD Webcam to use for matches on Spelltable. Everytime I have tried testing it out in my own lobby, my camera shuts off and stops working after about 20 minutes. I use the Chrome Browser, but have also tried using other browsers. I have turned off all the power-save settings on my laptop that might be automatically stopping my camera after a certain time period. I have also tried using a different browser but still have the exact same issue. The only way I can get the camera to turn back on is…

  8. Mobile Camera Freezes and Disconnects

    I use my iPhone 12 as my mobile camera to play Spelltable, while having the main lobby up on my PC (windows 10). The camera feed will consistently freeze then disconnect and show "Waiting for mobile connection." It will then reconnect automatically before inevitably repeating this issue after a random increment of time.

    The camera feed on my phone looks uninteruppted when looking at my phone. There is no disconnect from the internet, nor is my phone screen turning off. I've tried on both mobile Chrome and on Safari and encounter the same issue with approximately the same regularity.

    Any…

  10. Repeatedly getting Stream Error despite camera working

    My camera works fine on the Online Mic Test linked in the "add'l info to provide", as well as with every other app I've tested. However Spell Table gives me a Stream Error with it. Previously I was able to get around it by going into the Beta link that had the card reader which would then recognize the camera, however that link is no longer on the page as of this week. It appears others are having this Stream Error but no mention of fixing it is given.

  11. mobile camera countered

    When I sync my phone up as a mobile webcam through both the QR code and the link, it just says on my phone that the lobby already has the max occupancy in it. I don't know why, but it seems to be treating my phone as it's own person, not as a mobile webcam. I also tried with my friend's phone and that didn't work either. I've rebooted laptop, but that didn't fix it.

  12. C920 Logi Webcam Issues

    First time I loaded into spelltable, although slow, it worked, and I was able to play a few games with friends. Now the match page takes 5 minutes to load, and when it does, Im always met with a permissions denied error. I checked my permissions, they say my camera is allowed, I made sure nothing else (like ghub or obs) was grabbing the feed either, still no. I change my browser and make sure permissions are working there, still spelltable does not work. I even restarted my pc with the same issue. I see quite a few more users…

  13. Webcam Too Dark.

    I am having and issue with my video being too dark. The issue is the same on Firefox, andChrome. I've used the camera on a different laptop and it works fine. If I go to a different webpage( https://webcamtests.com/ ) the video feed is nice and bright. It's only on spelltable. I've cleared my cookies, and that didn't help either.

  14. My video will not appear full screen no matter camera or browser

    Over the last year I have used spell table and my camera alone cut off a large portion of my video, where there were 2 black bars on both the left and right of the image. I initially thought this was my webcam but it is also true with different cameras. I tested this with both Firefox and Chrome and the issue remains. Looking for suggestion on how to fix this issue.

  15. Spelltable camera issues (blue pixilated area)

    Got a new document camera, and it works great in everything but spell table. There is an area on the left where there is a blue pixilated bar. Attachments are using the camera in Discord vs Spell Table

  17. Camera out of focus only on Spelltable, not in OBS

    Spelltable (or Google Chrome) seems to do this weird additional autofocus on my cards. See screenshot: Background is Spelltable, foreground is OBS.

    Using Logitech c920 but I also had this on my phone and a Trust webcam.

  19. Spelltable not properly connnecting to phone camera

    I am trying to play on spelltable with some friends and use my phone as the camera so that my friends can properly see my side of the field. When i scan the qr code it takes me to the website and goes through all the steps and even brings up the phone on my camera BUT the qr code stays on my computer screen and my opponents can't see my mat. I've tried every trouble shooting that I could find online. Anyone else having this problem?

  20. When Playing outside of my own created lobbies I cannot use my phone as a camera

    When I create a lobby for myself and friends, I am able to use my phone as a camera no problem.

    However if I join a friend's lobby, it will attempt to sign me in through my phone and have that as my primary browser instead of my laptop.

    Is there any way to fix this?
