Camera in Use by other Application

I’m an online teacher on the Preply platform. I have created a Chroma keyed background and text blocks in Manycam as well as an input for my USB Venus Webcam. Looks great in Manycam but when I try and open the Preply Browser page for teaching, it says Webcam in use, unavailable. So I shut down Manycam in task manager, then I get my usual normal webcam pic. If I then try and restart Manycam it says webcam in use by browser…I’m going around in circles. What is the correct procedure?
