Webcam service is not working

I created a droplet a week ago and I installed a chat platform 123flashchat. Everything was OK, included webcam and microphone services. Today when I put live the link I saw the webcam and microphone does not work.

How can I check if the services are working?

The platform chat is working well; photo sharing service is working, that means the media server is working.

    5. Uninstall your webcam driver and scan for hardware changes.
    6. If your camera isn’t listed in Device manager, test ports and run a scan.

I believe the problem from SSL connection. I have to modify some command line from http to https.

Anyone found solution to this? I am having same problem. Changing http to https in the index file doesn’t help either. The HTML chat gets error and unable to load mic and webcam. Problem is that it is trying to load script which is not authenticated.

Any help?
