Back a few months ago when COVID started, I got myself a USB webcam (this one, to be specific). I found the fact that you have to plug it into the audio jack to be a little annoying, but otherwise it worked fine. Back then I was running Windows 10.
Recently I switched to Linux Mint (Ulyana Cinnamon, if it’s any help). When I try to use my webcam the video works, but my computer’s audio stops working for the duration of having the webcam plugged in. I think the computer is getting the microphone input mixed up with sound output, but I’m not sure. My computer has no other microphones or webcams (it’s a desktop), so I would appreciate it if y’all could help me resolve this quickly.
