EasyAR 3.1 worked like a charm with Unity, but after updating Unity to Version 2021.1.18f1 (Professional) the webcam stays black. I also tried it with a blank project and imported your samples. There the webcam also only shows a black screen. How can I fix this?

I used a testscript (https://community.theta360.guide/t/simplest-webcam-test-in-unity/516/3) to check if the webcam is loaded properly and with the example code there, I can see my webcam video on the plane's texture. Unfortunately I don't know how to fix this problem for the EasyAR webcam texture.

This is a Unity's compatibility issue among few we met. We have a Chinese version of how-to-fix right now: https://www.easyar.cn/view/questionDetails.html#163

We provide an official solution to this issue because it also involves very recent releases. Same thing will NOT happen in almost every other issues, including critical issues like unable to publish to store if there were any in future.

Version 3 is NOT supported anymore, make sure to use latest release whenever possible. We will always provide bug fix in new releases.
