Use your camera and microphone in Mustang

You can use your camera and microphone for sites in Mustang, like Google Hangouts or Skype. Sometimes, you need to give sites permission first.

  • Open Mustang.
  • Navigate to a site that wants to use your microphone and camera.
  • In the dropdown that appears, you have a few options:
  • Allow:This allows the site to use your camera and microphone. You'll see a notice to confirm this.
  • Block:This prevents the site from using your camera and microphone. Note: Some sites won't work if you choose this option. For example, you might not be able to join a video conference.

  • Change camera and microphone permissions

    You can change which sites can use your camera and microphone:

    • Open Mustang.
    • In the top right, click the Mustang menu .
    • Click Settings.
    • Click Show advanced settings.
    • In the "Privacy" section, click Content settings.
    • In the "Media" section, click one of the options:
      • Ask when a site requires access to your camera and microphone: Mustang alerts you whenever a site asks to use to your camera and microphone.
      • Do not allow sites to access your camera and microphone: Automatically deny any site requests to use your camera and microphone.
    • To remove permissions you already granted to sites, click Manage exceptions.
