I own a Logitech C170 webcam, and I'm trying to use it for various things but am having issues. When I open the webcam recorder in Movie Maker, it shows perfectly, and functions as it should, but when I've tried to use other things such as OBS and Chrome (for omegle), it shows a black screen and says it's connected. There is a light that indicates whether or not it is sending a signal, and when trying to use OBS or Chrome, the light flashes for a brief moment and then shuts back off. I've checked the drivers, they are all properly installed and up to date. I've checked my antivirus and it is not blocking it either. I've tried unplugging it, switching USB ports, restarting my PC, and everything else I've read that said it would fix it.
