There are hundreds of people getting the same problem like you, so on this article I am going to give you some useful information on it so that you can solve your problem.

There are several reasons of creating such problems. Main reason is that Microsoft had decided to add some new ways for applications to access webcams with Microsoft’s new windows camera frame server, preventing webcams from using two particular compression formats-H.264 and MJPEG. And this thinking of Microsoft that camera frame server should only receive an uncompressed YUY2 encoding stream from the webcam, not only create problems but also affects far more devices. And problem is created.
Although Microsoft had applied several techniques to solve it however it has still become as the big issue to solve it, so Iam going to give you some useful information on how to solve it. You can use these quick and simple techniques to solve it.
- At first go to start Menu, type “regedit” and press Enter. This will open “The Registry Editor”.
- Navigate to “”HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows Media Foundation\Platform” in the left sidebar.
- Then after, just right click on the “Platform” key and select New—DWORD (32-bit) value.
