Using Google Meet in Chrome on Mak

I've attempted to try Google Meet (new video conferencing app) in Chrome on a Macbook Air but get messages saying the computer's microphone or camera, sometimes both, are blocked. I've checked Preferences and do not see changes to make there. Is there a Bitdefender setting I should change and if so where is that? The attached screenshot was my latest attempt showing the microphone is apparently available while the camera is not.

  • Nope, does not work for me. I have added application to "white list" they still can't see the camera. I tried to disable webcam protection and the applications still can't see my camera.

    If I remove bitdefender then the applications can access the web cam
