How to Control a Webcam

Embark on your virtual tour with some helpful tips below.



Click the icon with four arrows whenever you’re watching a webcam livestream. This will put you in a queue for taking control of the webcam for a preset period of time. Only one viewer can control the camera at a time. The icon will turn yellow while you’re waiting and turn green when you’re in control. Once you have control, click the eye icon in the top right corner of the video player to change the camera position.
