Desktop app not showing in privacy settings for camera activation (Mac/Windows)

Hi Team! 🙂
To activate the camera in the MAC desktop app, i need to grant access to GTM in the privacy settings.
Problem is, for me and some other colleagues GTM doesnt show up in the list, so it cant be ticked to give the permission.
Reinstalling did not change anything.
Is someone else also experiencing this?  Is this a known issue?

Thanks in advance!

Update::
I have found a topic with a similar problem on windows, so this seems to be a cross plattform issue!

GoToMeeting and Windows 10 camera privacy settings

Hello,

 

I have an issue where GoToMeeting will not show video when using the desktop app. If I use Microsoft Edge and join the video on the web the video works just fine. I notice in the Windows 10 camera privacy settings that GoToMeeting is not listed as a desktop app that has access to the camera, but Mircorosft Edge is listed. When I joined the meeting through Microsoft Edge it asked for permission to use the camera and microphone, but the GoToMeeting desktop app does not ask for permission to use the webcam. Audio works fine in the desktop app, just no access to the webcam. I have checked for new drivers for the webcam and it says I am using the best driver for the device. Any idea how I get GoToMeeting access to my webcam in Windows 10?

 

Thanks.

Hi!
Thats really interesting! I just posted the same exact issue working from Mac, so this seems to be a cross-platform bug or something... 😕

That is interesting indeed....I was assuming that the user had possibly accidentally declined permission to access the webcam or something, but if you are seeing the same issue on your mac then maybe it is a bug in GTM.

Thanks.

Mac Accessibility Permission Causes Attendees To Be Listed Twice

We mostly use MacBooks and we've seen this common problem. If we have an attendee who is new to GoTo, they are prompted on the call to allow permissions in the Security & Privacy settings. Once the Attendee makes that change, they are required to shut down and restart their GoTo. This is constantly causing a duplicate of that attendee so they are listed twice.

 

Is there a solution to this to prevent that from happening? The prompts to allow seem to only occur when they need to share a screen or take ownership of the meeting so I don't see a way to make these adjustments before they are on in a meeting.

 

Thanks!

Hi, 

We are currently investigating reports of GoToMeeting audio/video feed recognition by Mac security and hope to have more information soon.  Thanks for your patience.

Re: Desktop app not showing in privacy settings for camera activation (Mac/Windows)

We managed to solve the issue...and it was not rocket science. 

For the first user we fixed it by restarting the program over and over until it somehow worked...

With another colleague we did it a little bit different.
After reinstalling the program, we only tried to start GTM via Link to get into a Testmeeting and then clicking on the webcam button which wasn't working - thats how the initial problem occured.
But when we started the program directly, without getting into a Meeting - and then went to preferences - webcama pop up of the system preferences imidiatly asked for Webcam permission.

I hope that does it for you guys too!
Have a nice week.

We're having the same issue on MAC.  I wouldn't labeld as solved. At best a workout, which I haven't tested yet.
