About the resolution test

The Webcam Resolution Test is a simple and free method to check online, what is the resolution of your webcam. As a result of testing, you will get the complete list of resolutions supported by your camera, as well as some tips, such as maximum resolution, minimum resolution and default resolution.


A nice feature of the resolution test is the possibility to take photos for each supported resolution, thereby you will be able to download them and compare their quality.


By default, it is checked whether your camera supports popular resolution standards. It's fast, but it may not be accurate enough. If you do not want to miss any supported resolutions, enable the brute-force method.


What is the camera resolution

The camera resolution determines the width and height of the captured image. Multiplying these values indicates the total number of pixels (abbreviated as “px”). One million pixels are equal to one megapixel which is abbreviated as MP (sometimes as Mpix, Mpx, or MPixel). Megapixels are often used as a measure of camera quality when the manufacturer indicates the maximum supported value. For example, a FHD webcam has a resolution of 1920×1080 and it can capture up to 2073600 pixels or 2.0736 megapixels, rounded off as 2MP.


Camera resolution and its quality

Even if the resolution is an important property of the camera, this does not mean that the higher the resolution, the better the image quality. By and large, a higher resolution usually provides more accurate details and good sharpness. For example, images taken with a higher resolution camera are better when printing large formats, viewing on big screens, or capturing small objects. But even if you do not need all this, Full HD is definitely much better than VGA.

  1. tito taganga,
    very very well done!
    1. a$ap Giffy,
      How does it work?! What's the science behind it?
      1. admin,
        What kind of science!? It runs on pure magic! If you are not afraid to be drawn into it, try to find something about "navigator.mediaDevices".
        1. Akik Sau,
          Magic is only the art of science shows in a different way.
        2. Anurag,
          Lol bro, I think he doesn't understand its not magic. The website accesses the camera and then checks different resolution support that's it.
  2. john wall,
    works fine
  3. Brian,
    Each test shows "Waiting for your permission..." but there is no place to grant permission.

    Works fine on Chrome. On Firefox it just hangs on "Starting your webcam." Permissions to use webcam are set for this site on both browser settings and are persistent. And I selected the correct webcam (there is only 1 to select anyway).

  50. jorge,
    how can change de resolution of my cam from 0.307MP to 0.922MP recommend ? Thank .
  51. Daniel Rosengarten,
    Excellent website - does exactly what it should do. I have tried this on a raspberry pi after building libuvc and tested various cameras using this site in the chromium browser. Great job!
  52. Greg,
    This site is perfect, and this page for Resolution was exactly what I needed. I found this through Google while on Live Chat with an agent from HP...and this test found my camera's resolution far FASTER than the HP agent, who was taking way too long to provide a simple answer about their own equipment.
  53. Nathaneil,
    I keep getting a message that my browser is downscaling the webcam output. Is there a way to fix this?
    1. admin,
      Unfortunately, this is a trait of Chrome. As far as I know, there is currently no bugfix for this. So, please try to use another browser (for example, Firefox works like a charm).
  54. Sam,
    I have this error message 'OverconstrainedErrornullnull; Object' when I tested with Chrome, but it worked fine when I used Safari. Why is that?
    1. admin,
      Recent versions of Chrome don't allow webpages to detect media devices' identifiers. Not sure if it is a bug or a feature, but for sure it broke a lot of things. Anyway, I released a workaround and now everything should work properly. Please feel free to test it and let me know if you have any questions.
  55. Gnanasekar,
    Very nice software. Thanks a lot.
  56. John Adams,
    Very nice. I just now wich I could figure out what camera to buy to replace this piece.
  57. Fadjar Djulizar,
    I like this page. i give me all the info I need about my web cam
  58. PinkLady,
    I don't understand the results but ok
  59. David Greenstein,
    The resolution test says that my camera supports 160x120 with .019 megapixels. The view that I experience with the camera is very poor. Is this a limitation of the camera or some other problem?
  60. James L. Turpin,
    Can't find driver for Creative WebCam Live Pro. Using UBS port!
  61. mader,

    The maximum supported resolution of your camera is 640×480 (0.307MP). As default camera resolution, your browser uses 640×480 (0.307MP) is it support for examination ?
