About WebcamTests.com

This site provides a free tool to test your webcam online and check if it is working properly. In other words, you can test it directly from your browser without the need to install third-party software. Despite such an easy way, you can start testing your webcam “in one click” on different devices, including laptops, smartphones, TVs, tablets and others. Regardless of the device and the operating system, as a result of testing, you will not only know if your webcam is working, but also find out a lot of useful information about it (i.e, webcam name, resolution, frame rate, number of colors, image quality and many other specifications). In addition, if the testing tool detects any problems with your web camera, you will receive some hints on how to fix them. After completing the webcam testing, among other things, you can take photos with your webcam and download them. Also you can view it in fullscreen and rate your webcam.



Why do you need to test the camera?

  • You purchased or connected a new webcam and want to check if it works properly (the webcam viewer will display the image in real time).
  • You have doubts about the parameters of a newly purchased webcam and you want to test your webcam and its features (because not all sellers are honest).
  • You have several cameras and you want to compare them to find out which one is better (the better the camera, the higher the “Quality Rating”).
  • Want to find out if your camera has built-in microphone or built-in speaker (be aware, this feature is a little buggy).
  • Want to know how many frames per second (FPS) renders your webcam (low FPS causes video lags).
  • Want to know how many colors contains a photo taken with your webcam (more colors mean higher image quality).
  • Want to know the resolution of your web camera (high-quality webcams have high resolution and can provide HD video calls).
  • Check the quality of your webcam compared to other webcams (for this you need to leave a review about your webcam).


How to test your webcam?

Testing your webcam with our online tool is very easy: just wait until the web cameras are detected and press the “Test my cam” button. If you do not see this button and don’t receive any notifications, most likely an error occurred with your browser. To help you, please email us at info@webcamtests.com



How your webcam is tested?

  1. First of all, it determines if the browser supports features for accessing media devices. If so, it displays a list of detected web cameras and necessary controls.
  2. When you press the “Test my cam” button, the browser will ask permission to launch the web camera on this site.
  3. After granting access, the camera will be launched and you will see the video in the webcam viewer.
  4. Now it’s time to determine the maximum resolution of the web camera (among other things, it will allow to calculate the number of megapixels and detect supported video standard).
  5. Next, it would determine the image quality (including number of colours, brightness, saturation).
  6. After some measurements, the number of frames per second (FPS) is determined.
  7. Among the latest tests, approximate video conferencing bandwidth is calculated.
  8. Finally are displayed the testing results, hints and additional controls (i.e, take snapshots, enable fullscreen, stop webcam, update data).


Why do you need to leave a review?

Once testing is complete, you can leave a review about your webcam. This is not required, but we encourage you to do so in order to help other people to purchase a good webcam and get around the bad ones. In addition, after publishing your review, you will see how good is your compared camera to others.



What are the system requirements for running the online webcam test?

To test your camera, all you need is a modern browser (unfortunately, Internet Explorer does not belong to them) that supports features for accessing media devices. As you noticed, this webcam testing tool does not require any additional software like Adobe Flash, Microsoft Silverlight or browser add-ons.
