Just an update that Malware Fighter v6.0 camera guard still blocks the video for jitsi.

 

To test

- install jitsi (you do not need to setup an account)

- Go to tools, options, video

Malware Fighter will ask for camera permission

even though you have selected allow the video preview will be black (and so will video calls).

 

To fix, disable camera guard and restart jitsi (important)

- Go to tools, options, video

Now the video preview will work (and video calls).

 

So the bug is that Malware Fighter camera guard can still block the webcam even though you have allowed it.
