ThinkPad X1 Gen6 Video freezes constantly while using Zoom

2021-10-14, 4:05 AM

I have been really struggling with video quality in my Zoom calls. The camera freezes periodically or is very slow. It is not due to internet quality. 

I have tried all driver updates, uninstalling and re-Thinstalling the integrated camera driver, etc. without any luck. 

Any suggestions?

Any suggestions?

  1. Have you tried other meeting software like MS Teams, Google Meet, etc.? If they have the same issues then it's likely a camera-related problem. If they work OK then it's probably a Zoom-related problem.
  2. Run Windows Task Manager. When you experience these freezes see if Task Manager reports anything unusual like high CPU, network, etc. consumption. 

My comments are mine. I don't work for or speak for Lenovo.
