    Camera in use when TS-Client is active

    I noticed that on my laptop the built-in camera is "active" whenever I start the TS client.

    The green light turns on the second I start the client and turns off as soon as the client is closed.
    I dont' need to be connected to a channel - even when the client is idle the camera seems to be "in use".

    If I try to start another application that uses the camera (like Skype) I get an "camera already in use - close other programs and try again" error.

    Can you please explain why the camera need to be active for TS to work? Is there a way to disable it since it feels very unconfortable to have the camera LED on all day while sitting in front of my laptop.

    Thanks for the reply

    Does your camera have a built in mic that you are using to talk in TS? This may be the reason why. Or even if TS detects the built-in mic could be another reason. Only if it has a mic of course.
