fix “There is no connected camera” on my Macbook Pro

note to self: sometimes it happens that applications cannot find a camera on my system, although it is definitely built in and not broken. This can be solved by stopping all applications that may be using the camera and then in a terminal run

sudo killall VDCAssistant
