Current versions of Chrome require that all content attempting to access the camera and microphone must be served over HTTPS. This brings the requirements for Flash Player in line with requirements for WebRTC.
The goal here is to force content providers to make changes that protect your privacy, by requiring all camera/mic streams to be encrypted.
Chatroulette will need to update their site to use HTTPS, if they would like their service to continue working in Chrome.
As a workaround, you can use any other browser.
This is not a chrome specific issue as I've encountered the same issue randomly today on multiple browsers. I've tried Chrome, IE & Edge. Same issue every time. I've tested my webcam it works fine offline. I've disabled & re-enabled the cam. Deleted & reinstalled updated drivers for the cam. Updated to the latest version of flash. Yet when I get to any chat website it asks to use my cam, I choose allow & my camera & mic no longer appear as options to use. Online searches lead me to the same cookie cutter troubleshooting techniques that end up with no results. Who can actually help us here?
