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. 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

  3. Camera Stuck in 4:3 Aspect Ratio

    I have an Ifroo 1080P webcam that is showing up as a 4:3 aspect ratio on Spelltable instead of 16:9.

    I am not able to change it, despite the settings on my PC showing it as 16:9.

  9. 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.

  10. Unable to Use Phone as Webcam

    My play group and I have tried to use our phones as webcams for this. And it works awesome for the host of the room.
    However who ever is invited and tries to use their phone has issues. The whole site transfers to the phone and the site on the computer doesn't function. The display, camera, microphone all gets routed through the phone.
    We have a wide mix of android and apple devices and it happens for all of us.
    Is there anything we can do about this? We have tried for a few hours to fix it but have…

  11. Cannot use smart device for additional camera.

    My friends and I were facing issues with using our phone/ipad as additional camera for spelltable. It seems to be some issue with the generated QR code/website.

  12. 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…

  14. "Trouble Using Your Device"

    The past couple weeks my camera has been stuck in 4:3 ratio, but still connected to spelltable. As of last night when I create a room spelltable wont even see my camera and says "having trouble using your device". Ive reset permissions and cache, made sure nothing else is using it, even tried a different camera, still the same result. Also, for what its worth, before it says that its having trouble using my device the "connecting to servers" message comes up which ive never seen before.

  15. Phone doesnt work since recent update that displays all cameras as options

    Here's an idea, how about every time you update or modify the software, you actually test it on a number of different devices. Every single change brings so many new problems. Cant believe the QR still points to a ?login=true url that kicks you from the game
    now since the update that lists each camera on a phone, the main rear camera doesnt work
    do you only assign jr devs to this or what?
    Is hocking literal cardboard at a 20000% markup somehow not profitable enough to warrant a decent devops team?
    This is such a good platform and you…

  16. Players Unable to See Each Other

    I meant to add that this is happening while both of us are on our phones. For some reason he can see himself in the window and is able to see me but I am unable to see him. We've tried everything to resolve with no luck. Any additional help would be greatly appreciated.
    Thank you very much

  17. OBS video source displays in lobby, but displays black screen in game

    When using OBS virtual camera the preview works fine, but when you enter a game the screen is black.

    Setup:
    -Windows 11
    -Google Chrome Browser
    -Enabled Camera/Audio permissions in Chrome and windows
    -When pulling video directly from a camera the video is fine.
    -When waiting in a lobby, the video displays correctly when OBS is selected.

  18. 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.

  19. Virtual Webcam Not Working

    Computer: macOS Monterey version 12.5
    Browser: Chrome

    I use an OBS (Streamlabs OBS) to stream games. A month ago I learned that I could use the Virtual Webcam option on the OBS to stream a digital deck on Moxfield or Archideckt to spelltable. So, instead of my desktop camera being used to stream my actual cards so all players could see my cards, I learned I could stream my digital versions of the deck from a deckbuilding site strain to spelltable.

    A month ago, this worked fine. No issues. However, I tried it again today and instead I get a…

  20. Phone Camera Stuck on Loading Screen

    Hey! I've been trying to connect my phone to spelltable and everything works fine until I press join game, for some reason when it starts loading in I get stuck on a blank page and it doesn't show my camera anymore but my phone is saying spelltable is using it. Not sure if it's my phone or is it something with the site?

    Cheers!
