In Scale Scavenger, I am stuck getting the same video repeatedly, and it doesn't work, so I can never get any credits. It loads fine, but then a second into it, it stops and says CAMERA ACCESS REQUIRED. Under that, it says OPT OUT, but when I click that, it just says DONE, and won't do anything else. I don't see anything else to do except click OPT OUT, but doesn't help. I would (against my better judgment, but oh well) allow camera access, but it doesn't give me that option. I tried allowing it in site permissions, but that didn't work. It wouldn't let me add it to exceptions.

If it would just move on to a different video, it would be fine, but every time I reload, it's the same one.

Is there anything else I can do?

Thanks

We don't have any control over the video queue, so you may just have to wait till that particular video cycles out, unless somebody else has figured out a workaround. :(

I've had the same issue with that one. Just keep trying to reload until you get another video. Also try doing hard refreshes each time (CTRL + F5 on Windows or COMMAND + R on Mac).

Try in Firefox. It gives you an option in the upper left corner to allow access to your camera. Then the video begins. It's only 25 seconds long & credits. Personally, I keep my camera 'lens' covered with a stamp or piece of tape until ready to use it. I've kept it covered for this video but allowed access & still get credit for watching it...which is what scale scavenger is all about...not them watching you.

Thank you Shih - that worked for me. Chrome didn't explain anything or give me any options, but when I tried it in Firefox, it was very clearly explained and all I had to do was click to allow access and the video played and I got credit.
In Firefox, I was able to read what the video had to say about this in the beginning - it says they want camera access so they can watch you as you view the video to see your emotional reaction to it. Which I think is really weird.  What good can that do them? Like they can tell anything about it by watching you watch the video. I doubt many people's faces give much away while watching. ESPECIALLY after you've seen it a hundred times!

So that makes me wonder what their REAL reason is! ;)

You're welcome dig74! Now, it would be nice to get rid of the Luxury Escape video that has been 'blocked' in my country. Seems kind of odd, a simple video like this wouldn't be view-able in the US, after all the near porn & questionable language we've been subjected to throughout many Virool videos.

I have also got that same video from luxury escape. its weird that it would not be available in US. i just wait until new videos appear. But that one still remains in que would be nice if it was removed. maybe t says that to prevent people getting credit and them having to pay.
