Thanks

The RPi camera is not a webcam. Chromium does not recognize it as a webcam.
But with additional software it can be done.
I haven't done it, but this looks like a good tutorial.
Introducing Pi-Power-Tools: The All-In-1 GUI Tool for Raspbian Images & SD Cards.
Boot in a VM, Flash directly from the Internet, Mount, Edit, Shrink, Expand, Repair, and much more.

PS. Want to download an Img ASAP? PPT's Download mode is 2x as fast as Chromium. :mrgreen:
