How do I let Flash Player access my webcam?
 
I want to use http://tinychat.com/ on Arch Linux amd64 (well, ArchBang, which is basically Arch Linux + some stuff).

I have Flash Player installed on Chromium on amd64. When I try to let Flash access the webcam, it fails to bring up a dialog box asking whether I want to let Flash access the webcam.

Rather, it presents me with the message "You pressed 'Close' [which I didn't, I didn't press anything] without letting the app access your camera or microphone.

{try again}
{close}'

Regardless of whether I press "try again" or "close", it still doesn't let me broadcast the webcam.

I cannot talk to my friends. ;_;

You should try the 64 bit version of Flash Player.

I found the solution! Go to this page:

http://www.macromedia.com/support/do...manager06.html

Scroll down in the menu and find the site you want to use a webcam/microphone on, and set it to "Always allow".
