I have tried to install some software (camtwist and camera live) to help use a dslr as a webcam, I've since deleted them but it has made every app which requires a camera unexpectedly quit (photobooth, facetime and zoom) I have reinstalled the operating system and the problem is still there, I've re-installed zoom and the problem is still there MacBook Pro (Retina, 15-inch, Mid 2015) OSX El Capitan 10.11.6

Any help would be amazing! T.I.A

I would first update to Catalina as El Cap is pretty old and see if that resolves the issue.

Failing that, do a Time Machine restore from just before you installed the problematic software

I have the same problem which started around the same period as sambaggaley i was using yosemite. I had never done a time machine backup but i did it and then upgraded to el capitan and the problem still persists.... If anyone has any solution apart from trying to upgrading to catalina please help!!!!

TIA Parth

Thanks. I updated to Sierra and that fixed it, so thank you. I also started to do time machine backups as I wasn't before. Thanks all
