Every time I select the webcam option on the Genymotion player, the title of the webcam option comes up, but then the hole emulator crashes.

I'm using the free version of Genymotion. I get this problem, regardless of the Android type or screen size etc.

So I solved this by installing Genymotion as root,

~>>> sudo su
#>>> ./genymotion-installer.bin
